We work collaboratively with children, families and their teachers to help identify reasons why children might be struggling with their learning in the classroom. At childhood psychology we only work with a small number of families at any one time, so that we can offer each of our families a high quality service.
Our assessment services can help identify issues including impairments in reading and spelling (dyslexia), writing (dysgraphia) and mathematics (dyscalculia) in addition to behavioural concerns such as ADHD. Impairments in working memory, attention and information processing abilities may be identified during the assessment. We also consider social and emotional factors, which might be impacting a child’s progress in the classroom including anxiety, lack of confidence, teacher-child relationship and peer interactions.
