Assessments

At Self Reflections we provide psychometric testing and assessments for children, adolescents and adults as per the gold standard recommendations. This allows a in-depth understanding and may aid in additional funding, support or workplace applications, among others. We also provide comprehensive reports as required.

An assessment can evaluate a range of psychological abilities and identify areas of concern, such as:

  • intellectual or learning capacity
  • measures of attention and memory
  • strengths and weaknesses
  • personality strengths and difficulties and personality disorders
  • cognitive functioning
  • measures of mood
  • developmental difficulties
  • psychological injury
  • behavioural change

IQ ASSESSMENTS

WHY AN IQ ASSESSMENT?

An IQ assessment can help diagnose intellectual disabilities, learning disorders or measure someone’s intellectual potential (giftedness).

HOW IS IQ MEASURED?

Intelligence and cognitive ability can be measured by an array of psychometric tests. At Self Reflections, we utilise the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children, 5th edition (WISC-V) and Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale, 4th edition (WAIS-IV), as per gold standard recommendations.
  • WISC-V - The WISC-V is the gold standard assessment tool designed to measure a child’s intellectual ability. It is an individually administered comprehensive clinical instrument for assessing the cognitive ability/intelligence of children aged 6 years 0 months through 16 years 11 months (6:0 – 16:11).The WISC-V provides subtest and composite scores that represent intellectual functioning in specific cognitive domains, as well as a composite score that represents the general intellectual ability.
  • WAIS-IV - The WAIS-IV is an IQ test designed to measure intelligence and cognitive ability in adults and older adolescents, ages 16 years to 89 years.

HOW MUCH IT WILL COST?

Assessment may require up to 4 sessions, billed at regular clinic rates to ascertain history, administer the test and discuss results (see our FEES page for further details on session costs).
Additionally, a fee of $650.00 (plus GST) per report is applicable. Combining an IQ Assessment with a Functional Behaviour Assessment (FBA) may require up to 4 sessions billed at regular clinic rates with an additional fee of $1100 (plus GST) per report. Payment plans for reports
are available.

FUNCTIONAL & BEHAVIOURAL
ASSESSMENTS

WHY A FUNCTIONAL BEHAVIOUR ASSESSMENT?

A Functional Behaviour Assessment (FBA) is a process that identifies specific target behaviour, the purpose of the behaviour, and what factors maintain the behaviour that is interfering with the student’s educational progress.

WHEN TO DO A FUNCTIONAL BEHAVIOUR ASSESSMENT?

An FBA should be used for students with behavioural or emotional problems that are interfering with their educational progress or the progress of other students. The FBA can be a part of the Student Assistant Team (SAT) process, be used to develop an Individual Education Plan, or provide information for verification of a disability. However, any student who is exhibiting challenging behaviours that are not responding to typical school interventions may benefit from a functional assessment. Conducting a functional assessment before a behaviour escalates into a disciplinary action allows both the teachers and parents to focus on positive outcomes and can help build a positive relationship between the teacher, the student and family.

HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?

Assessment may require up to 4 sessions, billed at regular clinic rates to ascertain history, administer the test and discuss results (see our FEES page for further details on session costs).
Additionally, a fee of $600.00 (plus GST) per report is applicable.Combining a FBA with an IQ Assessment may require up to 4 sessions billed at regular clinic rates with an additional fee of $1100 (plus GST) per report. Payment plans for reports are available.

HOW IS FUNCTIONAL BEHAVIOUR MEASURED?

Functional Behaviours can be measured by an array of psychometric tests. At Self Reflections, we utilise The Conners Rating Scale 3rd Edition (Conners 3), the Adaptive Behaviour Assessment System 3rd edition (ABAS-3) and the Child Behaviour Checklist (CBCL) also known as The Achenbach System of Empirically Based Assessment (ASEBA), as per gold standard recommendations.
  • CONNERS 3 - The Conners Rating Scale – 3rd Edition (Conners 3) offers a thorough assessment of ADHD in children and adolescents from 6-18 years of age. The Conners 3 also addresses comorbid disorders such as Oppositional Defiant Disorder and Conduct Disorder.
  • ABAS-3 - The Adaptive Behaviour Assessment System 3rd edition (ABAS-3), provides a complete picture of functional skills across the life span from birth to 89 years. It is particularly useful for evaluating those with developmental delays, autism spectrum disorder (ASD), intellectual disability, learning disabilities, neuropsychological disorders, and sensory or physical impairments.
  • CBCL (also known as ASEBA) - The Achenbach System of Empirically Based Assessment (ASEBA) offers a comprehensive approach to assessing adaptive and maladaptive functioning. Directly linked to the DSM-5 Oriented Scales, including:
    • Depressive Problems
    • Anxiety Problems
    • Somatic Problems
    • Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Problems
    • Oppositional Defiant Problems
    • Conduct Problems

AUTISM ASSESSMENTS

WHY AN AUTISM ASSESSMENT?

The purpose of the Autism Assessment is to determine whether an individual is on the autism spectrum and to provide information about their presentation and support needs. This assessment is suitable for individuals 2 years and over who have never been diagnosed with autism before or where there has been conflicting opinions expressed by professionals and clarification is sought. Autism Assessments can be used to assist in applications for funding (e.g. NDIS eligibility, Disability Support Pension, school supports) and include information to assist with support planning.

HOW IS AUTISM MEASURED?

Autism can be measured by an array of psychometric tests. At Self Reflections, we utilise the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, 2nd Edition (ADOS-2) and The Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised (ADI-R), as per gold standard recommendations.
  • ADOS-2 - Accurately assesses autism spectrum disorders across age, developmental level, and language skills.
  • ADI-R - Is a structured interview used for diagnosing autism, planning treatment, and distinguishing autism from other developmental disorders.

HOW MUCH IT WILL COST?

Assessment may require up to 4 sessions, billed at regular clinic rates to ascertain history, administer the test and discuss results (see our FEES page for further details on session costs).
Additionally, a fee of $1400.00 (plus GST) per report is applicable. Payment plans for reports are available.
