Parramatta Psychology Clinic conducts a comprehensive assessment which involves the gathering of information from an array of sources. The goal is to gain insight about a child’s strengths and weaknesses by observing, communication and social skills, sensory activities as well as restricted or repetitive behaviours, activities or interests. The extent and severity to which a child can function on a daily basis can range from mild to severe.
