Child and Adolescent Assessments – What to Look For

With experienced child psychologists, Strategic Psychology provides comprehensive IQ and cognitive assessments for both children and adolescents. Our assessments can identify potential learning difficulties, such as reading, language, or attention challenges.  Our goal is to provide accurate and insightful assessments to support individuals to understand their cognitive abilities and pave the way for targeted interventions and personalised support.  At Strategic Psychology, our psychologists employ an empathetic and strengths-based approach when working with children, focusing on their unique abilities and supporting their emotional well-being throughout the assessment process.
