Psychological testing is a valuable resource to help you understand yourself better. There is nothing to fear - it's an opportunity for psychologists to determine the best way to help you.

All psychological tests should be administered, scored, and interpreted by a qualified psychologist.

Before the start of any psychological assessment or testing, a formal clinical interview is often conducted to provide a comprehensive picture of the person being tested. An assessment can last from one to three hours, and includes questions about the individual’s personal and childhood history, recent life experiences, work and school history, and family background.

Some psychological tests are used to assess mental health conditions such as ADHD, memory problems and general cognition. Others assess levels of achievement, IQ and personality.

Child & Family Packages

Our specialised assessment packages can give invaluable information about your child’s development, learning and behaviour.

All of our assessments are conducted by fully qualified psychologists who have extensive experience in psychological assessment for children, adolescents and young adults.

Every assessment comes with a report that is highly specialised and clearly explains the results and provides individualised recommendations. We make sure you are informed every step of the way and take the time to go through results with you fully.

Choose from our comprehensive assessment packages, or talk to us about your specific needs and circumstances so we can tailor the right assessment for your child.

Our therapy groups offer individuals the opportunity to target specific issues while working in a structured environment. The group environment can help you feel supported by others who understand their experiences. 

Group therapy provides the benefit of gaining insight and feedback from others who have shared your experiences. It allows individuals to access different perspectives, and promotes growth and change. It encourages group interaction and does not target individuals. 

You may also be eligible to receive substantial Medicare rebates. Ask our reception.

Behavioural Assessment

Cost: $1035

Behavioural Assessment

Challenging behaviours can be a normal part of development and testing of boundaries as children grow. However, if behaviours persist or are having a detrimental impact on wellbeing and day to day functioning, there may be some underlying difficulties that need to be addressed. In most cases, difficult or challenging behaviour is your child’s way of communicating an underlying need.

This assessment can help to determine what the underlying function of the behaviour is for your child and the factors that may be maintaining it. We are then able to provide a positive behaviour support plan to assist in making behavioural changes. This behavioural assessment package can also be invaluable in managing difficult behaviours in the context of Autism, ADHD, Developmental Delay or other learning and developmental difficulties.

What is included in the assessment?

  • A parent interview and review of your child’s developmental and family history and presenting concerns.
  • Analysis and interpretation of teacher and caregiver data records of observed behaviour collected over a 2-4 week period.
  • Observation of your child in school or other natural setting.
  • Standardised behavioural questionnaires completed with parents and teacher (CONNORS Comprehensive Behavioural Rating Scale).
  • Feedback session to discuss findings and recommendations.
  • Detailed report with positive behaviour support strategies to address behaviours of concern.

How long does the assessment take?

The assessment takes place over 4 sessions, with a data collection period of 2-4 weeks. This allows a more complete picture of your child’s behaviour patterns across time and contexts. A report will be provided within 2 weeks of the final session.

Am I entitled to a rebate?

Medicare rebates may apply when a behaviour assessment is undertaken as part of a therapeutic treatment plan recommended by your child’s GP or Paediatrician. This is in the form of a Mental Health Care Plan. Total rebate across 4 sessions with a Clinical Psychologist is approximately $500. Assessment reports do not attract a Medicare rebate.

Alternatively, please contact your private health provider to see if you are eligible for a rebate.
