Our assessments are comprehensive and aimed at building a strengths and difficulties based profile for each child, along with a detailed plan of management, rather than focusing simply on IQ scores or diagnostic labels.
The Assessment is carried out using various psychological tests including:
- Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-IV (WISC-IV)
- Wechsler Individual Achievement Test- Second Edition (WIAT-II)
- Neuropsychological Assessment for Children, Second Edition (NEPSY-II)
- Vineland Adaptive Behaviour Scales, Second Edition- Survey Interview Form for Parents
- Conners’ Teacher & Parent Rating Scale – Revised
- Test of Written Language 4 (TOWL-4)
- Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale – III (UK)
- Woodcock-Johnson III (WJ III) Tests of Achievement
- Social Communication Questionnaire (SCQ)
- Childhood Autism Rating Scale (CARS) – 2
- Indian Scale for Assessment of Autism (ISAA)
After the assessment, a comprehensive report is designed which includes:
- Background information: This includes details of the early years, school history and highlights the main concerns. The information is collated primarily through parental interview, questionnaires and school feedback
- Neurodevelopmental profile: In this section we attempt to understand the child’s profile through interpreting his/her scores on various developmental/cognitive, academic and neuropsychological tests. The focus is on building a balanced picture of his/her strengths and difficulties.
- Plan of management -On the basis of the child’s profile, we design a plan in the following areas
- Assets & affinities: what parents and school can do to nurture the strengths and learning style of the child to help him/her realise his/her potential in different areas
- Accommodations and specific interventions:
- Accommodations that are necessary for the child to bypass his/her difficulties to learn efficiently
- Specific interventions that might help the child to build skills in the areas that have been identified as being not well developed
- Professional interventions -the professional input in terms of family therapy, parenting work, group work, special education, occupational therapy etc that might be required to enhance his/her growth and development
Our reports are recognised and accepted by all national and international boards, including CBSE, ICSE, IB and IGCSE.
