Psychological Assessment

Psychological Assessment involves the planned use of interviews, observations and specific psychometric instruments (tests), the results of which can be used for a range of purposes including complex diagnoses, clarifying symptoms, and informing interventions and therapy. Assessments are highly informative when meticulously planned for each individual, and when they involve the client, parents and other professional who may be working with the client. They can range from short consultations to detailed comprehensive assessments involving several hours of face-to-face testing. Results based on a comprehensive assessment can be used to make informed decisions to ensure the best outcomes for clients.

NDIS Assessments

The NDIS requires information about how a person's impairment/s impact on their day-to-day life (i.e., the functional impact of the impairment). Information regarding the impact of the functional impairment is usually best provided through a functional assessment. These can be completed completed by a Psychologist at Poulton Respondek Clinical Psychology, and this is just one way in which we can support  NDIS participants.
