Neurodevelopmental and Psychological Assessments

We celebrate differences!
Thank you for contacting Insights in relation to an assessment. Insights has a multidisciplinary team that are specialised in conducting neurodevelopmental assessments. Neurodevelopmental differences are variations in a person’s brain style that may result in distinct strengths and challenges, that impact on how a person experiences the world. Insights is an affirming clinic, which means that we love meeting people with differences in brain style.
We celebrate the value that these differences bring to our friendships, our workplace, and the schools and clinics that we work with. Wouldn’t life be dull if we were all the same!

Some neurodivergent people meet criteria for a clinical diagnosis.
Common neurodevelopmental differences include, but are not limited to, learning needs, language needs, attention regulation differences, social communication and sensory differences, and motor coordination challenges. A neurodevelopmental assessment seeks to explore if these differences in brain style meet criteria for a clinical diagnosis.

Examples of a clinical diagnosis include:
Specific Learning Disorders (Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia)
Developmental Coordination Disorder (Dyspraxia)
Language Disorder
Global Developmental Delay and Intellectual Disabilities
