At FSA Health & Wellbeing, we understand that assessing cognitive abilities and evaluating various aspects of development is crucial for understanding an individual's strengths, weaknesses, and potential areas of improvement. Our comprehensive range of psychometric assessments enables us to provide accurate and insightful evaluations for children, adolescents, and adults. With our team of experienced professionals and access to cutting-edge assessment tools, we are committed to delivering high-quality assessments that can inform personalised interventions and support strategies. We are passionate about delivering assessments that are neuroaffirming and believe that challenges that bringing people to assessment are rooted in expectations and demands that are placed on a neurodivergent person functioning within a neurotypical (typically developing) society.
Assessments are administered by qualified clinicians and a comprehensive report summarising findings can be provided. Reports may be used to assist funding applications, however you should confirm with the relevant body what a supporting report should include before submitting.
FSA Health & Wellbeing offer assessment for:
Specific Learning Disorders, and identification of learning difficulties (e.g., Dyslexia, Dyscalculia),
Diagnosis of Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD),
Diagnosis of Autism,
Intellectual Disability, and
Assessment of functional capacity.
Your initial background session will be charged at the time of completion using stored payment details provided to us, and a receipt issued. Following this, your assessment cost will be provided as a total amount. This will be provided to you as an itemized quote.
Following the initial background call, charges for each of the itemised inclusions in the assessment process will be charged at the time of delivery. Following your Feedback Session, a determination will be made of whether a Comprehensive Report is required or not. If a Report is required, a $170.00 deposit will be billed (equating to the minimum amount of time for completion, or one hour). Please note the option for a Brief Report option is only suitable for cases of adult assessment. As children's needs are likely to change over time, a Comprehensive report is required in the interest of any future assessments and interventions, schooling needs, and additional supports.
Additional costs may apply for other services requested. Fees are subject to change for which you will be notified in advance. Some services may attract a Medicare rebate; however, this will be discussed when a quote is provided, as it will not be applicable to all assessment options.
