At Catalyst Psychology, we offer high quality Psychology assessments to children (6yrs +), adolescents, young adults and adults to help you better understand yourself or your child. This includes Cognitive (IQ or Intelligence), Educational Attainment, Giftedness, Autism, ADHD and Specific Learning Difficulty (eg., Dyslexia, Dyspraxia etc) assessments, and Department of Education Special Consideration applications.
Each assessment is tailored to the individual and the reason for the assessment. Then we prepare detailed reports with specific recommendations for you, or your child and their school. Reports can also be used for funding applications. Feedback sessions are conducted to help you understand the results and where to get support.
This can enable you to help yourself or your child better cope with the demands of everyday life and improve.
Many assessments are conducted via iPads to make the testing more appealing. They are a fun, interactive and engaging way to complete some assessments.
Medicare, Private Health and NDIS funding is available to assist with the cost of assessment, depending on your circumstances.
