The Concepts Psychology team is experienced in conducting a broad range of psychological assessments for children, adolescents and adults. We make it a priority to ascertain each individual’s unique needs so the most appropriate assessment can be conducted. Assessments are conducted at schools or at our office in Ramsgate, Sydney.

The Concepts Psychology team is a preferred assessment provider within schools across the Sydney metropolitan region due to our experience, quality and the accuracy of our assessments.

What are assessments for?

Our psychologists conduct a range of comprehensive assessments to identify any behavioural, academic or social / emotional difficulties. The psychologists can then identify recommendations for the most appropriate interventions based on these needs. Similar to visiting your doctor when you are physically unwell, assessments are how psychologists learn about the symptoms you are experiencing. Many parents approach us for an assessment when their child is having difficulty at school or home.

What’s involved?

We recommend and perform different assessments depending on the individual. Here is what you can expect from an assessment with Concepts Psychology.

Book an appointment

When you call to make an appointment, our friendly administration team will explain the process to you. You will be asked to bring in any previous assessments and relevant background information. It’s important to note that you don’t need a referral to get an assessment done.

Initial diagnostic interview

On the day of your appointment, you will be invited to complete an assessment information form. Our psychologists will then have a discussion with you to learn more about your child’s needs. This is an opportunity for us to gather information about your child’s development and discuss which assessments will be most suitable. It is also a chance for you to ask any questions you may have.

Meeting your child and administering assessments

The psychologist will then make sure that your child feels comfortable to start the assessment. Assessments can take between one and three hours. They are conducted in a safe environment in a one-on-one session with your child.

Feedback and results

As part of our assessments, we provide a feedback session directly afterwards to outline the results and answer any questions you may have. We then prepare a comprehensive report outlining the tests administrated, results and specific recommendations for the home and school environments.
