Learning Disability Assessment For Children

Child educational assessments

The fee for a psycho educational assessment is €595. When an appointment for a psycho-educational assessment is offered to you we will write to you confirming your appointment with our psychologist. We will also send an information pack, which includes the following: a parent consent form, a parent history form and teacher observation form.

The teacher form needs to be passed on to whatever teacher knows the student best e.g. class teacher, learning support/resource teacher or guidance counselor. The parents consent form needs to be signed by both parents prior to the assessment.

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 accept the appointment.

Please forward a deposit of €150 as a deposit to hold the appointment. The balance is payable in full on the date of the assessment. You will receive the detailed assessment report within two/three weeks of the assessment.
