Psychological Assessments

Educational Assessment

Also known as an academic or achievement assessment, measures how a child is performing in a range of academic skill areas and how this compares with grade/year level expectations and age equivalent performance. Educational assessments help identify an individual’s strengths and skill levels in the areas of oral language, reading, writing, spelling, and mathematics.


Educational assessments are administered by Psychologists to help identify an individual’s level of academic achievement in specific areas, in the diagnosis of specific learning disorders such as Dyslexia or Dyscalculia, in developing strategies and classroom accommodations to support specific learning strengths and weaknesses, and to inform the development of a Personalised Learning and Support Plan.
