Educational Assessment

A Senior Education Therapist at Dynamics can assist in administering the Education Assessment. Our Education Assessment is of great practical use for understanding the learning profile and highlighting why children experience problems in the learning situation. This type of assessment is of great benefit to parents, teachers, and tutors for understanding a student's learning profile, level of achievement and to provide a baseline for planning an effective Individual Education Plan or Education Therapy Programme.

Our Education Assessment can be useful for pupils who are not meeting the criteria to qualify for an assessment from within the school but not fulfilling their potential.

The Education assessment takes approximately 2 hours with the student with a 30 minute feedback session on delivery of the report. The assessment is suitable for 5 years and above and suitability is discussed in advance, as the possible presence of particular Learning Difficulties can mean that assessment by the Psychologist is more appropriate.

An in-depth analytical report is produced within 2-weeks with verbal feedback to explain the results and recommendations.

The purpose of the consultation is to gather relevant information and check if the student would be more appropriately assessed by a Psychologist.
