“What if my child’s problem is not on the list?”

Get in contact, Leia may be able to help. If Leia doesn’t have the skills or experience to assist you, she will let you know – and will provide you with recommendations on what to look for in another psychologist to ensure that you get appropriate help.  Kelly is available to consult regarding adjustment to illnesses and injuries or their treatment.

We also conduct a range of assessments, including:

Learning/Cognitive/IQ Assessments (including Learning Difficulties and Giftedness)

Educational/Academic Achievement Assessments

Screening for Autism Spectrum Disorder

Screening for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

All assessments will include:

A Clinical Interview with the Parent/s (where a specific plan will be established regarding the assessment)

Formal Psychological Testing (e.g. pen and paper or computer based testing) or Screening Checklists

An Observation of the Child in a school setting may be necessary to obtain more information

A Letter or Comprehensive Report will be provided depending on the nature of the assessmen

The contents of the report will be discussed in depth at a Feedback Session

Referrals & Rebates 

Your General Practitioner or Paediatrician is often the best way to access psychological therapy for your child. They are able to provide mental health care plans where your child is experiencing mental health challenges.  Mental health care plans (MHCP) entitle you to a $124.50 rebate via Medicare for TREATMENT services provided by Leia. A MHCP does not cover Assessments.

What about private health?

Of course, you can use a private health fund where you have coverage for psychology.  Check with your fund to check your coverage and find out how much they will rebate.
