Assessments

Psychological assessment uses a combination of techniques (including clinical interviewing and assessment tools) to help assess a person’s capabilities and personality. Psychologists are the only professionals that are expertly trained to perform and interpret psychological tests. Healthy Minds psychologists use clinically objective and standardised measures to assist in the assessment of clients. They are highly trained and experienced in writing psychological reports that are appropriate for the intended audience.

The WAIS-IV is an individually administered clinical assessment for adults. It aims to assess a person’s level of cognitive functioning. The assessment consists of a battery of indexes that assess specific areas of cognitive functioning. The assessment also yields a Full Scale IQ score and four Index Scores (verbal, perceptual, working memory and processing speed). The WAIS-IV is the latest version of Weschler Adult intelligence Scales and was developed in recognition of emerging demographic and clinical trends. It reflects current theory and provides the most advanced measure of cognitive ability and results you can trust.

Memory Assessment Scales (MAS)

The MAS is an individually administered clinical assessment for adults. Through 12 subtests it assesses three areas of cognitive functioning which are critical in the assessment of memory.

Personality Assessment Inventory (PAI)

The PAI is an individually administered clinical assessment for adults.

The WISC-IV consists of a series of short sub tests that provides a composite score for general intellectual ability as well as information on specific cognitive domains. The WISC-IV is the fourth generation of the most widely used children’s intellectual ability assessment. It is a result of over a decade of cutting edge research and thinking.

Results can also be used to design instructional objectives and plan interventions. The WIAT-III assesses 8 areas of achievement including oral language, reading, written language, and mathematics. The WIAT-III is the third version of this assessment and has been designed to improve the diagnostic power and sensitivity of subtests and provide maximally informative scores, skills analysis, and intervention goal statements.

The Childhood Autism Rating Scale (CARS) helps to identify children with Autism and aims to distinguish between mild-to-moderate and severe Autism. The CARS 2 assessment tool has been developed to be more responsive to individuals on the “high functioning” end of the Autism Spectrum – those with average or higher IQ scores, better verbal skills, and more subtle social and behavioural deficits.  The CARS 2 helps to integrate diagnostic information, determine functional capabilities, provide feedback to parents, and design targeted intervention.

MULTIPLE CLIENTS FOR ASSESSMENT?

As well as conducting single assessments we are happy to speak to organisations who wish to have several assessments conducted at one time or over a period of time.
