ADHD WA provides testing services for young people aged 6-16. Elena Trethowan, a provisional psychologist, is available to conduct cognitive and educational assessments.
ADHD WA Testing Service provides three types of assessment:
- Cognitive (IQ) assessments are used to develop an understanding of a child’s learning capability, including their relative cognitive strengths and weaknesses.
- Psychometric assessments include cognitive assessment and additional assessment of attention, memory and executive function.
- Educational assessments provide information about a child’s academic ability over a range of skill domains, including language, reading, comprehension, written expression and mathematics.
This information, in combination with a comprehensive developmental history (parent interview), can be used to assist in further psychological or medical assessment (such as assessment for ADHD) or in the development of individualised learning or curriculum adjustment plans with your child’s school.
All assessments will include a report of test results for parents which may then be shared with educators or health professionals.
ADHD WA testing services accessible to all ADHD WA members with a family membership.
