What Does An Assessment Involve?
Assessments usually take between 2.5-3.5 hours. The assessment will comprise of a combination of screening questionnaires, discussions (with parents if the client is a child) and a range of standardised tests. The tests involve thorough analysis of the individual’s strengths and weaknesses. Cognitive tests are used to investigate an individual’s key thinking skills including verbal reasoning, memory and processing speed. Tests of attainment are used to examine specific reading and numeracy skills. Additional assessments can be used, as required, to assess social interaction difficulties and/or emotional and behavioural difficulties.
