What can Educational Assessments do?

At our Brisbane clinic, our registered psychologists can test you or your child’s cognitive abilities. In doing so, we can identify whether there are any clear indications of dyslexia. Dyslexic individuals exhibit sensory perceptual differences. These can lead to abstract differences in performance when compared to their peers. By testing dyslexia at an early age, you can adapt your child’s learning environment. This will better accommodate their cognitive understanding and greatly benefit their future prospects.

Overcoming dyslexia

Dyslexic individuals perceive information differently to their peers. However, through innovative visual and experiential learning styles, dyslexia can be dealt with. These styles can minimise the negative impact commonly developed through conventional methods. Through adaption, dyslexic individuals have succeeded in their education and their careers too. In fact, some of the most talented and gifted individuals in the world have dyslexia. Yet, even they can attest to school life being troublesome.

Whilst dyslexia can be a lifelong challenge, it’s not without its graces. Individuals tend to build coping strategies to succeed in education and their careers. Recognising these learning differences at a young age can significantly help individuals. They can reconsider their approach to how both they and others read, write and listen. This will help plan their learning pathway through to their careers and lifelong passions.
