Often a child or adult presents with a variety of difficulties, a comprehensive assessment can often provide a 'culture of understanding' about the child or client. This is helpful because it allows the individual to understand their strengths and weaknesses. It is helpful for teachers and carers to also have a good idea about how to understand the individuals strengths and recognise weaknesses so that an informed plan can be made to improve the person's difficulties.
At Leigh Morgan Clinical Psychology, we are able to provide a number of assessments, some of which are detailed below.
These can be helpful to assist in educational planning, to support funding applications and to inform treatment.
