COGNITIVE ASSESSMENT CLINIC

(Ages 6 - 16 years, 11 months)

A specialist Cognitive Assessment Clinic is available to formally test children’s thinking, problem solving and reasoning abilities. This can help to determine the child’s strengths and weaknesses in thinking, problem solving or reasonsing; to diagnose an intellectual disability or giftedness and eligibility for school support.

 

A referral for a cognitive assessment may be made for the following reasons:

 

  • To help determine the child's strengths and weaknesses in thinking, problem solving and reasonsing.

 

  • To diagnose an intellectual disability or to identify an intellectually gifted child.

 

  • To act as a baseline before undertaking some type of treatment or intervention program.

 

  • For eligibility for government funding for school support, under the Program for Students with a Disability (Department of Education and Early Childhood Development).
