School Readiness Assessments

Is your child ready for “big school”?

School readiness refers to a child’s ability to cope with formal learning in a school environment on a multidimensional level. This includes your child’s intellectual, emotional, social and physical development. We offer a comprehensive assessment, report and recommendations to assist you in making educational decisions for your child. 

Psycho-Educational Assessment of IQ, Learning Strengths & areas for development

Once your child has started school, he or she may not be coping with school or homework, or generally at home. This could result in your child having trouble with reading, spelling, handwriting, following instructions, listening in class, completing work, behaving appropriately, or making friends.

We offer a detailed assessment which looks at your child’s strengths, abilities and difficulties.
