Learning Disabilities Testing

Understanding and supporting children with learning disabilities are crucial for their educational and personal development. At Steps and Stones Psychology, we provide specialised assessments to identify learning disabilities in children, helping to tailor educational strategies that cater to their individual needs.

Our Testing Process

Learning disabilities testing at Steps and Stones involves a comprehensive, evidence-based approach:

  • Initial Consultation: Discussing the child’s educational history and specific concerns with parents or guardians.
  • Standardised Testing: Using validated tools to assess reading, writing, mathematical abilities, and other cognitive functions related to learning.
  • Observational Assessments: Evaluating the child’s interaction and performance in structured tasks.
  • Collaborative Feedback: Engaging with educational professionals if applicable, to gather broader insights into the child’s academic performance.
