We work with families to find effective solutions to complex problems both in the home and the school environment.
We are trusted for comprehensive assessment and management of developmental delays, learning difficulties, problems with emotional regulation or challenging behaviours in children and adolescents.
We help parents to achieve peace of mind by helping their children reach their potential. We assist children and teenagers to improve their learning, manage their emotions and establish rewarding relationships.
Development & Learning
Including slow attainment of developmental milestones; speech and language problems; school readiness; reading and writing difficulties and issues experienced by gifted students.
Including attention control problems; hyperactive or impulsive behaviour; refusal, defiance or aggression and anxiety, fear or depressed mood.
Including difficulties with establishing or sustaining friendships; lack of empathy or concern for others; behaviours resembling Autism Spectrum Disorder; sleep problems and emotional and behavioural difficulties due to chronic illness.
Fast Track diagnostic assessment
This allows completion of comprehensive evaluation, diagnostic formulation and management plan in one week. Fast Track assessment is valued by families who must travel long distances with their child, or parents who feel that an urgent problem requires assessment in a shorter timeframe.
