Its helpful to have information from your child's current or previous school, but we can also complete part of the assessment at home. The important thing is that we see your child in at least two different settings to get a complete picture of their strengths and difficulties.
Please email us directly or use the 'contact' form and you will be allocated the next available appointments. We try to cluster your appointments within a 1-2 week window. You will be asked to complete a personal information form and return to us, and to pay a £200 non-refundable deposit to confirm your appointment.
We do collect some information via a zoom call; however we find that we can get a much more accurate and in depth picture of your/ your child's strengths and difficulties by having face to face assessment sessions. Some of the assessment tools we use can be complete online, but some are only valid if completed face to face.
We are based in Bangor in North Wales and for the most part, people travel to us for their assessment. We do offer assessments outside of North Wales, at an additional fee for travel time and mileage. Please contact us for a quote.
Only psychiatrists can prescribe ADHD medication. Our assessments are for diagnosis and recommendations but we cannot recommend or prescribe medication. Once you have your diagnosis, you can either take your report to your GP and ask to be referred via the NHS, or request a private psychiatry appointment, to discuss whether medication might be helpful for you.
Yes, we can complete assessments prior to University and make recommendations regarding support. However, your Student Support Services may also be able to offer (often non-diagnostic) assessments of your learning needs and so it is helpful to discuss with them first what they are able to offer you.
We do offer therapy for people with neurodevelopmental differences and post-diagnostic counselling; however there is a long waiting list at present for 1:1 therapy. Our Occupational Therapist, Roz Reid, will be offering outdoor-based therapeutic sessions soon, so please get in touch if you would like more information regarding this or to join her waiting list.
Yes, our Occupational Therapist offers dyspraxia assessments, with a recommendation that you have any medical reasons ruled out by your paediatrician. She can also assess and make recommendations for any difficulties with daily living skills, writing/ cutlery use, and so on.
Yes, our Speech and Language Therapists are experienced at assessing the level of your child's understanding (receptive language), their ability to express themselves, and make recommendations for how best to adapt communication or develop their communication skills.
We can send through some pictures of the assessment room and the staff that will be conducting the assessment to you prior to the assessment to help them prepare. We usually describe the process as completing some puzzles on the iPad, playing with some toys, and talking about what is difficult for them. We try to make the assessment as low-pressure as possible, and to work at your child's pace with frequent breaks. They can bring in any fidget toys or favourite snacks/ drinks, and you can be in the room with them if they find that comforting.
