Sensory Integration and Praxis Test is the most comprehensive, standardised assessment of Sensory Integration and praxis. Developed by Jane Ayres in 1989.
The assessment is 120 minutes in length, using the SIPT and Clinical Observations. Parents will then receive a written report with recommendations including graph data. There will then be a one hour verbal feedback meeting where we will discuss the results and recommendations at length.
The TAPS assesses language processing and comprehension over three areas, auditory memory, phonological processing and listening comprehension. These areas are vital components to the development of higher language skills which are key to the successful completion of school.
The test is 60-90 minutes in length and is administered by a Speech and Language Therapist.
The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC), was developed by David Wechsler, it is an intelligence test for children between the ages of 6 and 16.
The WISC is individually administered by a Psychologist and takes 45-65 minutes to administer. The IQ test provides index scores for five key areas, Verbal Comprehension Index, Visual Spatial Index, Fluid Reasoning Index, Working Memory Index, and Processing Speed Index. These give an indication of cognitive ability and the identification of learning disabilities, particularly dyscalculia and dyslexia.
The Wechsler Individual Achievement Test was developed by David Wechsler in order to assess the academic achievement of children and adults, from age 4 until age 85.
The test is based on four basic scales, reading, math, writing and oral language.
The test is 45-90 minutes in length and is administered by a Psychologist. The mean score for the WIAT test is 100, and the scores on the test may range from 40 to 160.
