Behavioural Assessment

ADHD, Conduct Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder

A Behavioural or ADHD assessment offer valuable insights into distinguishing normal, age-appropriate behaviours from potentially “abnormal” ones.

Common Signs of Behavioural Disorders

Frequent episodes of intense anger or temper tantrums.

Acting impulsively without considering the consequences.

Excessive restlessness, difficulty staying still or focusing.

Trouble concentrating on school work or tasks that aren't interesting.

Engaging in lying and/or stealing behaviours.

Challenges in following directions.

Difficulties with organisation and time management skills.

Experiencing academic and social problems.

Common Diagnoses from a Behavioural Assessment

Undiagnosed ADHD or other difficulties related to concentration, motivation, hyperactivity, or impulsivity can leave individuals struggling for years without understanding why.

Many perceive these challenges as personal flaws and face criticism, especially in school environments.

For many, receiving a diagnosis provides a sense of relief by identifying the underlying source of their difficulties, whether it is ADHD or another related condition.

Having an existing diagnosis can save time and funds if you eventually decide to consult with a psychiatrist, even though we do not prescribe medication ourselves.

A Behavioural or ADHD assessment offer valuable insights into distinguishing normal, age-appropriate behaviours from potentially “abnormal” ones.

Parenting can be a rewarding but challenging journey where what works one day may not work the next. It’s normal for children to push boundaries and exhibit challenging behaviours at times, but distinguishing between what is normal and abnormal can be difficult.

By undergoing these assessments, you can obtain diagnoses, access additional funding, and gain a better understanding of your child’s unique strengths and difficulties. This understanding allows for tailored academic and general support to help your child thrive.

The assessment process typically spans approximately six weeks and includes:
  1. An Intake Appointment
  2. An Online Assessment
  3. A Feedback Appointment
These assessments require confirmation that the symptoms exist in two or more contexts. Therefore, input from the teacher or school is often required to provide information regarding an additional context. However, the psychologist will need to obtain consent from the parent before contacting the school.
Yes, the psychologist will need to gather background information and meet the child and guardian. The psychologist needs to speak to the guardian without the child and supervision arrangements may need to be made.
Sometimes, depending on the results and the psychologist's assessment plan, your child's presence may be requested during the feedback session. The psychologist will inform you about the necessity of your child's attendance when you schedule the feedback session.
For ADHD assessments without a separate assessment appointment, the psychologist will provide an electronic questionnaire that can be completed by the child, parents, and teachers.
You will typically receive your results during the feedback session, which generally takes place six weeks after the initial appointment. The psychologist will review the report, discuss the profile of strengths and difficulties, provide recommendations, and address any questions you may have.

If you are a current participant of the NDIS, they will assess each individual on a case-by-case basis. Please refer to our NDIS section for further information.

Private health may be claimed for the assessment (or part of), depending on your cover.

While it is not required, you are welcome to ask any questions you may have. The psychologist is available to address your concerns and provide clarification as needed.
During the intake session, the psychologist will ask a range of questions related to the child's background, developmental history, overall well-being, and functioning in various areas of life.
It would be helpful to send any previous assessments or reports, correspondence from schools or paediatricians, or any other relevant documentation that may be related to the assessment process. This information can provide valuable insights for the psychologist.
In most cases, after a psychological assessment, it may be recommended to consult with a paediatrician or psychiatrist for a comprehensive evaluation. Psychologists typically provide provisional diagnoses for ADHD. For confirmation and potential medical interventions, a specialist in paediatrics or psychiatry may be consulted.
While psychologists can provide a diagnosis of ADHD, they do not prescribe medication.
