People learn new skills in different ways. Some people have more trouble learning than their peers because of a brain-based difficulty they have in acquiring literacy and/or numeracy skills. These learning challenges become more apparent in the classroom as children progress through primary school, but sometimes go unnoticed until high school or even tertiary studies.
Once these learning differences are identified, strategies can be implemented to help the person achieve academically and vocationally. Bowen Hills Psychology offers diagnostic assessment in Specific Learning Disorders (such as Dyslexia and Dyscalculia).
Why Choose Bowen Hills Psychology?
Bowen Hills Psychology offers learning/educational assessments for children, adolescents and adults. Our assessment process involves an intake interview, behavioural observations, the parent or self-report questionnaires, a review of work samples, and a clinical assessment (WISC-V and WIAT-III). We also offer behavioural observations outside the clinic (home, school) where necessary. We provide you with a comprehensive report including recommendations for learning in the classroom and strategies for home. Our assessments can help determine whether an individual meets the diagnostic criteria for a specific learning disorder, but also help identify their strengths and how to capitalise on these and investigate whether their symptoms are better explained by another issue.
