How do I make a referral to PsychEd?
You can refer to us by email or by telephone, or just ring for an initial chat. It helps us to have some basic information when you make a referral to us, therefore we provide a form which you may like to use - however, this is not a requirement. Click here to download the Referral Form.
How long does an assessment with a psychologist usually take?
3 hours, under normal circumstances. This includes assessment time and feedback to adult clients or parents/carers.
Will I stay with my child during assessment?

We find that children generally concentrate better if their parent(s) are not in the same room; however, you are very welcome to wait in the next room.

Will my child be entitled to examination access arrangements?
That depends on the assessment results. There are strict guidelines for exam concessions set on the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) website.
Do PsychEd psychologists assess adult clients and University students? Can you carry out assessments (e.g. dyslexia assessments) for people at work?
Yes. We have experience in completing such assessments.
Do you assess working memory?
Yes, where appropriate.
Do you assess processing speed?
Yes, where appropriate.
Will you be able to explain on the assessment day if my child is dyslexic or not?
Usually, yes. Very occasionally further reflection would be required, if the pattern of needs is not clear.
Are all PsychEd psychologists approved by the British Psychological Society and Health Professionals Council?
Yes. We also have up to date CRB checks.
How long before I receive a formal written report?
Within 15 working days, but like to exceed expectations so often produce them quicker. If it is urgent, please ask and we will do our very best to accommodate you.
When and how should I pay for the assessment?
Before the assessment, using PayPal or by sending a cheque made payable to PsychEd Ltd. If this is not possible, it is acceptable to pay on the day with cash or by cheque made payable to PsychEd Ltd.
What happens if a psychologist finds difficulties in a medical area, for example, speech and language or motor skills difficulties?
The psychologist will suggest further assessment by other professionals where appropriate.
Is there any follow-up after the assessment?
After assessment, a review appointment can be booked at any time, but if you have any further questions please email or ring us.
