Psycho-educational assessments at ACCESS Paediatric clinic are conducted by psychologist, Karolina Pasierbek of ‘Little Bee Psychology’. Karolina can assess your child’s cognitive abilities, academic skills, and socio-emotional functioning. These assessments help to identify learning difficulties, determine appropriate educational interventions, and provide recommendations for support. They can also help to identify giftedness, ADHD, and other educational needs. They are valuable tools for developing appropriate educational plans and interventions to support children in their academic journey.

The components of a psycho-educational assessment may include:

Cognitive Asessment: This involves evaluating intellectual abilities, such as verbal and nonverbal reasoning, memory, processing speed, and problem-solving skills. It helps identify strengths and weaknesses in cognitive functioning.

Academic Assessment: This assesses your child’s academic skills in areas such as reading, writing, mathematics, and spelling. It helps identify specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyscalculia or dysgraphia, or areas of strength.

ADHD Assessment: This evaluates attention span, impulse control, organisation, planning, and other executive functions that are important for academic success.

Socio-emotional Assessment: This assesses social and emotional functioning, including behavior, social skills, emotional regulation, and mental health concerns that may impact learning.

Observations and Interviews: Karolina may contact teachers, parents, or other relevant individuals to gather additional information about your child’s functioning.

Report and Recommendations: Following the assessment, a detailed report is provided summarising the findings and recommendations for interventions, accommodations, and support services that may be beneficial for your child.
