Assessments & Psychological Testings

A WIDE RANGE TO SUIT YOUR NEEDS

Our experienced psychologists, educational diagnosticians and testing consultants take a unique team approach to perform tests and develop recommendations customized to each individual's needs, from children to adults.

We use a broad range of proven assessment tools to test and identify the root of learning difficulties and behavioral or motivational issues. We interpret the test results in the context of a person's life, taking into account individual gifts and interests when making recommendations for improved learning. We make every effort to ensure the diagnostic testing process is a positive experience in a non-threatening and comfortable setting.

To Schedule for a Testing

  1. Initial Consultation
    The initial consultation helps us gather information about you, your child or other family members, which includes medical, family and educational histories. You will be asked to describe areas of concern which you or your family member is having difficulties with. From here, we determine the types of tests which are appropriate and make practical recommendations. Following this, you will be scheduled for testing. The initial consultation is S$220.00 and is part of the total cost for testing. The total cost for testing will depend on what tests and how many tests are administered.
  2. Evaluation
    Our unique team approach for testing relies on two people for an individual's evaluation. Together they provide broader perspectives, richer interpretations and more insightful recommendations to the person's unique needs. We select the latest tools for tests from the fields of cognitive assessment, neuropsychological assessment, educational assessment, and social and emotional assessments.
  3. Conference
    After completing the testing process, the team meets to discuss and interpret the findings. You will then meet with the professionals who conducted the evaluation to review the findings, their significance, and possible courses of action.
  4. Written Report
    We provide a detailed analysis and comprehensive recommendations as part of the test report. Supported by the findings from these tests, our recommendations form an indepth action plan that enable you or your family member to move forward with confidence.
