What We Offer


Holistic Assessment

“See a child differently…see a different child.”

– Dr. Stuart Shanker

More than identifying learning, social, emotional, cognitive and/or developmental needs, Holistic Assessment involves providing context-specific strategy integration and follow up. Our Holistic Assessment process includes:

  • Parent and child consultation* (90 minutes)

  • School visit (observation)

  • Consultation with Teachers (30 mins)

  • If required, assessment measure administration, scoring and interpretation

  • Report writing, inclusive of strategy integration for home and school contexts

  • Strategy implementation plan

  • Follow up (review) consultation* (60 mins)

*subject to Medicare rebate  

Already completed a cognitive assessment?

A stand-alone Holistic Recommendation and Implementation Plan is available, which reviews all documentation (from parents; teachers and learning support; Medical and Allied Health professionals), to meet the needs of the child.
