The IQ assessment
Canberra Child IQ Testing

Also known as cognitive/psychometric testing, IQ testing assesses verbal and visual problem solving, fluid reasoning, processing speed, and working memory. We currently use the WISC-V (Weschler Intelligence Scale for Children; ages 6-16 years) and the WPPSI-IV (Weschler Preschool & Primary Scale of Intelligence; ages 4-6  years).


The Educational assessment

Educational or academic testing involves assessing a child's skills in word reading, reading comprehension, spelling, writing, and numeracy. We currently use the WIAT-III (Weschler Individual Achievement Test). An educational assessment is crucial in the diagnoses of any specific learning difficulties.


Behavioural & Emotional Screening
