Formal assessments typically measure the child or young adult’s cognitive (intellectual) abilities and also measure the individual’s literacy and numeracy skills.
The clinic-based assessments take place in our Harley Street Consulting Rooms or in our hospital clinics in Oxford or Cheltenham.
Children under 13 years of age are seen in our Oxford Clinic or Harley Street Offices only.
In our hospital clinics, there are waiting-room facilities (newspapers, tea, coffee) for adults/parents accompanying children and young adults.
Our school-based assessments follow exactly the same procedure but can be particularly useful for young people who would be anxious in a clinical setting or for whom attending a hospital clinic proves difficult for parents to arrange.
A full formal assessment will usually take about 1.5 - 2 hours and immediate feedback is available at the end of the session. The assessment is always conducted on a 1:1 basis.
