Psychological TestingClinical Diagnostics
IQ and academic testing are vital to identifying a child’s cognitive strengths and weaknesses, academic needs, and preferred learning style. This information helps parents and children make educational decisions and implement strategies to support the child’s learning.
Our psychological testing services use standardized assessments, behavioural observations, and interviews for a comprehensive understanding of each child’s needs. We work closely with parents and educators to provide support.
Psychological testing is a crucial tool for identifying and addressing challenges in children and adolescents. Insights gained from testing can develop strategies for overcoming challenges and improving academic and emotional well-being, helping children reach their full potential
What is IQ Testing?
IQ testing looks at intellectual functioning in several cognitive domains namely:
- Verbal Comprehension
- Visual Spatial
- Fluid Reasoning
- Working Memory
- Processing Speed
What is Academic Testing?
Academic Testing focuses on establishing a child’s learning profile in areas such as:
- Reading (e.g. phonological processing, reading comprehension and fluency, word reading and pseudoword decoding)
- Oral Language (receptive and expressive language skills)
- Written Language (e.g. spelling, composition, writing fluency)
- Mathematics (e.g. numeracy, math reasoning and problem-solving)
What To Expect?
The Assessment Process:
- An initial assessment with parent(s) is a crucial part of our assessment procedure.
- Depending on the presenting concerns, relevant tests will be administered in a scheduled time. Typically, testing may require about two or more sessions for approximately 6 to 12 hours, excluding the initial consult session, depending on the child’s capacity and needs.
- To help some children overcome fatigue and stress, testing may be spaced out over several days.
- A comprehensive written report will be prepared after all testing is completed, based on the assessment and testing outcome. The report will highlight the relative areas of strengths and difficulties, with recommendations for home and school settings.
- A feedback session will be arranged for parents after the completion of the report. During this session, parents will have the opportunity to clarify and discuss any concerns about the report.
At the initial consultation session, the psychologist will have a discussion with parents regarding the charges for the assessment, which will depend on the specific needs of the child or person and the tests that are required. The charges usually range from SGD$1,800 to SGD$2,800, but this can vary depending on the complexity of the assessment required.
