Many of life's failures are people who did not realise how close they were to success, when they gave up.

Psychoeducational assessments

Psychoeducational assessments concern the testing of a learner’s underlying cognitive processes and how these impact on the individual’s educational, social and emotional well-being. This type of assessments is usually only administered with a recommendation or referral. Learner’s who portray barriers to learning and those who struggle to meet the school system requirements are often assessed.

Time and time again parents are at a loss of where to start when it comes to helping their child. Do you go the remedial, occupational, counselling or medical route? Psychoeducational assessments give the learner an unique learning profile and provide an in-depth understanding of their educational and learning abilities. The psychometric assessment battery will differ according to the reason for referral and grade that the learner is in. School readiness evaluations, identification of learning barriers, admission requirements for special-needs schools and exam concessions can be assessed. The assessments are in-line with the requirements set by the Department of Education.
