It depends on the type of assessment being completed. Most assessments will take a minimum of 3-4 sessions (including intake, testing, and feedback sessions). The number and length of assessment sessions required will depend on the purpose of the assessment as well as your child’s engagement in the testing. Once the testing has been completed, the clinician will typically write the report within 4-6 weeks and notify of any further complexities should they arise.
You child will participate in assessment activities designed to investigate specific areas of development. Activities may be play-based in nature or may involve more standardised tasks designed to measure specific skills. Your clinician will work closely with your child to ensure they are comfortable and will put any necessary supports in place to help them to participate to their fullest potential.
Depending on the type of assessment, some documents that may be helpful for your clinician to review include:
It helps to explain to children before the assessment that they are coming to see someone who is going to do different thinking games with them, and that most children find the different activities fun. Avoid describing the appointment as a test or assessment as this can make some children feel anxious.
