Assessment for Learning Disabilities

This assessment is focussed on ascertaining the presence of learning difficulties. It will also screen for other social and behavioural difficulties which may impact on learning and performance in an individual.

The assessment comprises of psychometric testing and a structured clinical interview with the patient as well as a parent/carer of the patient who can comment on the patient's childhood development. The interview with the parent/carer can be conducted over the phone or Skype if the parent/carer is unable to attend on the day of the appointment.

The assessments last 2 hours. The process will involve:

  • Testing through completion of various simple tasks and/or completion of psychometric questionnaire
  • Discussion of patient's struggles guided through structured questions
  • If parent/carer present, discussion of childhood development through a structured questionnaire

The patient will be asked to provide the following:

  • Completed questionnaires which will be emailed when appointment is confirmed
  • School/college reports
  • Any previous psychometric and psychological assessment reports

These can be emailed back or photocopies to be returned on the day of the appointment.
