Who can be assessed?
Full psychological assessments are available for primary and secondary school children. The full assessment consists of:
1. Cognitive /IQ tests (measurement of child's intellectual functioning) and
2. Literacy tests (such as reading, writing and spelling).
It takes approximately 3 hours to complete the assessment. This excludes an interview with the parent(s) prior to the beginning of the assessment which would usually take about 30 to 45 minutes. Our assessments are held in the mornings, when the children are performing at their optimal levels.
The concluding session will be held on a separate day after the assessment. the psychologist will explain the assessment results to the parent(s). A written report, carrying the details of the findings and recommendations will be made available to parents in about four weeks time. To ensure the security of these confidential reports, all MAP reports will be sent through registered mail.
