It is with great pleasure that I announce the next exciting development within
KP Psych services.
Kid Psychology is a child-centred clinic based in SW Sydney that offers an array of assessment and therapy for children and young people who have neurodiverse, cognitive, learning, social and emotional needs.
Kid Psychology works closely with families, medical and allied health providers, early childhood centres and schools across the Macarthur region to provide support for children to enhance overall mental health and wellbeing.
Kid Psychology offers assessment in:
Autism Diagnostic Observation Scale - Second Edition (ADOS2)
Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised (ADI-R)
IQ assessments - using the WPPSI-IV and WISC-V
Adaptive Behaviour Assessments - using the Vineland 3 and ABAS 3
Behaviour scales - BASC3
Screeners for language, learning and sensory issues
The needs of your child will be taken into account when determining which assessment is most suitable to identify and support their needs.
The results of these assessments may be able to be used as one part of the planning process for NDIS initial funding or review of existing funding.
The results could also help your child access other supports for when they start kindergarten, or access early intervention supports that are available in the local community.
Fees for the assessments start at $1000 (GST exempt) and more detailed information about the structure of the assessment process will be explained to you at the initial appointment.
You do not need a referral from a GP or paediatrician to access Kid Psychology services, however to claim any eligible Medicare rebates, you do require a referral from either of these sources.
Initial and subsequent therapy appointments start at $170 (GST exempt) for a 50-60 minute session. This cost is significantly lower than the current recommended fee of $251 from the Australian Psychological Society. Extended sessions are available for additional cost.
