What does an assessment involve?
Different assessments have different requirements, but they generally follow a standard approach.
During testing sessions, your child will meet one-on-one with their assessing health professional, such as a psychologist, occupational therapist or speech therapist to complete a range of activities. Your child’s assessor will always start by spending time building a rapport to ensure your child feels comfortable. Testing is usually scheduled earlier in the day when most children are functioning at their best.
The length of the entire assessment process can depend on several factors, including the number of assessments needed and availability. The length of each assessment appointment with your child will range from 1-2hrs. This is followed by a feedback appointment when you will receive a report.
