An individual assessment with an Educational Psychologist can sound very daunting for a young child. In reality, most children enjoy the assessment process!
An educational psychology assessment tries to understand a child’s needs using a wide range of information:
Observation in class
Assessment using questionnaires and tests.
Depending on the child, the first five to ten minutes is used to settle the child into the assessment through a combination of drawing, talking about their likes/dislikes and maybe filling in a questionnaire.
The assessment is divided into short chunks to allow time for breaks. Some children have discussed that the assessment tasks are like playing games.
Following the assessment, a detailed report is written which is shared with parents or schools.
