Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Psychological or Psychometric Assessment?


Our Cognitive Clinic proudly offers our unique I.D.E.A.L. approach to Diagnostic Psychological Assessment. Our Individually Tailored Easy to understand Assessments for Learning, including cognition (IQ), education, social, emotional and behavioural development, ensures that we find solutions to often complex problems that the individual is facing when we first meet. An assessment is all about explaining what is going on by understanding the individual’s profile of strengths, any gaps that may help explain difficulties, and most importantly, providing recommendations on what is next! Jackie Schell is a highly experienced Clinical Psychologist with a holistic scientific approach, who uses a variety of specialised tests and assessment tools to observe your behaviour, abilities and areas of your life that need support.
