Psychological Assessments

Is distraction or procrastination affecting your ability to work or study? Are you an adult who has suffered from these symptoms but never been assessed? Is this delaying your ability to access school supports, submit an NDIS application, or engage other services?

ADHD assessment requires expert skills and training to determine whether your behaviour is within a typical range or is neurodivergent. Of the small number of professionals who offer comprehensive ADHD assessments, the waitlists are long and the fees are high. 

Dune Health and Wellbeing is a multidisciplinary mental health practice with clinics in Liverpool and Wollongong. 

We have a number of provisional, registered and clinical psychologists with the skill, expertise and availability to assess for ADHD for only $989 and within 4 weeks from your first assessment interview.

What is psychological assessment?

Testing is a formal process using validated and reliable measures of aspects of an individual's psychological or cognitive functioning. It might include paper and pencil tests like questionnaires and  surveys, or the completion of set puzzle-like activities that evaluate certain skills such as planning, memory or problem-solving. Referrals are not typically required although exceptions may apply (e.g., worker's compensation). 

What is psychological assessment used for?

Psychological testing can answer a broad range of questions. For instance, a psychologist may help test an individual to judge whether they are competent to manage their own affairs responsibly.  Psychologists often assess children with special learning needs, people with brain injuries, or older adults experiencing problems with declining memory so that they, and others around them better understand their needs. Psychologists also provide assessments for the criminal justice system, or evaluate and provide professional psychological opinion to the courts on child custody cases.
