Cognitive Assessments

As an Educational & Developmental Psychologist, Vivienne has worked extensively with Children and Adolescents in assessing their cognitive abilities and learning needs.

 Vivienne can administer:
  • Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children – Fifth Edition (WISC-V) – a measure of cognitive ability for children aged 6-16 years,
  • Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Adults – Fourth Edition (WAIS-IV) – a measure of cognitive ability for adolescents aged 16 years and adults.
  • Wechsler Individual Achievement Test – Third Edition (WAIT-III) – a measure of academic achievement in children, adolescents and adults
The assessment process includes consultation with parents, carers, teachers, the administration of the assessment tool, provision of a report, follow up feedback session to discuss the results, identified needs and recommendations. This discussion/information can also be provided to school teachers, referrers as required.
