Learning Disability Assessment for Adults

Adult educational assessments

When an appointment for a psycho-educational assessment is offered to you we will write to you confirming an appointment with the psychologist. We will also send you an information form to be completed and returned to the Centre.

The fee as outlined to you is €595. A deposit of €150, made payable to the psychologist needs to be sent by return, so that we can hold the appointment date for you.

At An Cuan we aim to keep our waiting lists as short as possible to facilitate urgent assessments. On account of this we will only be able to hold the appointment date for ten days from when you confirmed the appointment. The balance is payable in full on the day of the assessment. You will receive the detailed assessment report within two/three weeks of the assessment.
