Frequently Asked Questions

My child is struggling with schoolwork

Call us and discuss your concerns.  It is probable we will recommend an educational assessment.  If your child has already been assessed, we can provide assistance if you are not sure how to proceed.

 

My child is struggling with concentration

Call us and discuss your concerns.  It is probable we will recommend an assessment of your child’s attentional capacity, an educational assessment, and provide you and your child’s teacher with questionnaires to complete on your child’s behaviour.

 

What is included in an educational assessment?

An educational assessment includes:

  • Individual comprehensive assessment
  • Written professional report
  • Recommendations for intervention
  • Parent and teacher consultation
  • Ongoing telephone advice

My child has already been assessed

If your child has already been assessed and you are not sure how to proceed, we can assist with interpreting the results of the assessments and the report, or meet with the School, as required.  We can also provide current evidenced-based interventions with which you may assist your child.

 

Will I be involved in the intervention?

Yes.  We are strong believers in involving one or both parents in the remediation program.   A common complaint from parents is that they have not been involved in their child’s intervention so when difficulties are encountered at a later stage, the child is required to return to the professional for more intervention.  We are keen to involve you in your child’s intervention to enable your child’s progress to be ongoing.

 

My child is struggling with his/her behaviour

Call us to discuss your concerns.  We may need to meet with you and your child’s School to gather necessary information before conducting a behavioural assessment.  It is also probable we will recommend an educational assessment.
