The PsychResponse, Child Unit, is driven by the philosophy that "prevention is better than cure". The unit incorporate, working collaboratively with the child's family, school and other health professionals to ensure the delivery of high quality assessment and treatment. Further support is provided to children of all ages and abilities through one-on-one therapy and Group Counselling
At PsychResponse we also conduct a range of psychological assessment, including, structured interviews, observations in natural settings when possible, informal assessments and standardized psychological test which provide valuable information about a child’s level of functioning and an index for evaluating change. Often, standardized tests can be costly, however, at PsychResponse we are offering these test at the most affordable prices to ensure that our philosophy of “early prevention” is fulfilled.
