Psychological reports are very time consuming to write requiring advanced technical knowledge and skills, and they are a necessary part of our discipline. Reports allow communication between interested parties, provide professional accountability and provide you with a record that may be useful at a later time. At the Enki centre each psychological report is written by the psychologist for the individual child and is not simply a standard report generated by a computer.
Enki Child Psychology Centre Psych-educational reports, typically includes:
- Clear statement of the referral question/s or concerns
- A list of assessment measures used
- relevant background information, including medical and educational history.
- observations made during the assessment session (e.g., level of attention or distractability), that contribute to understanding the referral question
- description of the testing methodologies used
- results of any tests and questionnaires completed, including easy to read graphs, for example showing how your child’s abilities compare with other children at the same age
- a discussion of the child’s cognitive/academic strengths and weaknesses, in easy to read language
- a summary and conclusion including answers to the referral questions
- suitable recommendations, which include teaching and learning strategies for home and school, as well as suggestions regarding interventions that may be appropriate
- Appendix which includes detailed information about the assessment results that may be useful for other professionals working with your child.
