I can conduct full, robust and holistic assessments of children's cognitive functioning and also develop behavioural, social, emotional and academic profiles. Assessments can be conducted at the child's home or in their educational setting. Written reports detailing the outcome of the assessments, the needs of the child and the educational provision that would best meet their needs are always provided.
My fees for all work are £95 an hour. I will ensure clients are provided with a written quote for any work agreed.
Every child is different and their difficulties can be wide ranging meaning any assessment needs to be tailored to their individual needs. This makes it difficult to provide a 'typical' quote for a piece of work. The following example for a child with literacy difficulties should be viewed as a guide:
Full cognitive assessment: 1.5 - 2 hours
Additional completion of assessments to explore literacy difficulties: 1.5 - 2 hours
Writing up of report: 3 - 4 hours
Travel costs: Travel time costs £45 per hour
VAT is not chargeable
If neccesary I can arrange to visit a child's educational setting to observe them in their learning context and consider the suitability of their educational provision. This would always include consultations with relevant school staff which would be included in the final written report.
Services to Educational Settings
I can offer a bespoke service to schools, early years settings and local authorities. This work can include consultation with staff, parents and children, assessments, intervention and training.
