Assessments can be a valuable way of gaining insight into your child’s strengths and difficulties. They assist in correctly identifying difficulties in a range of developmental areas and can provide useful guidance in establishing interventions and supports.

Assessment services provided by Flow Psychology include:

  • Cognitive assessments
  • Academic achievement assessments
  • Functional behaviour assessments
  • Assessment of emotional and behavioural difficulties
  • Speech and Language assessments
  • Sensory Processing assessments
  • Autism diagnostic assessments

Typically, an initial appointment is required to determine whether and what kind of assessment is required. Assessments can take place at your child’s school and involve an interview with parents, followed by the testing with your child. We may also ask your permission to gather information from your child’s school/teacher. The clinician will then provide you with a comprehensive report and meet with you and relevant school staff (if desired) to discuss the results and recommendations. We use the most up to date versions of tests available and utilise state of the art iPad Pro administration to ensure that testing sessions are engaging and largely enjoyable.

The cost of assessments vary depending on the tests used and the amount of time required to complete the testing.

Assessments will be booked at the discretion of the clinician following an initial consultation with the family.

Please note:
  • Medicare rebates may apply if the child has a valid care plan from their General Practitioner. Please discuss this at the time of booking the initial consultation.
  • Private Health Rebates may apply, in accordance with your health fund and policy.
  • NDIS fees are billed at the standard private hourly rate
