psychometric assessments

A psychometric assessment is a process of evaluating an individual’s strengths and weaknesses in different areas of functioning. The information gathered from these assessments and from an initial interview helps with identifying a potential diagnosis and determines the support needs of the individual.​

At thoughts and things, we provide a variety of different psychometric assessments to fit your individual needs. These include:

  • Wechsler Intelligence Scales for Children – Fifth Edition (WISC-V)

  • Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scales – Fourth Edition (WAIS-IV)

  • Wechsler Individual Achievement Test – Third Edition (WIAT-III)

  • Adaptive Behavior Assessment System – Third Edition (ABAS-3)

  • Conners – Fourth Edition (Conners-4)

  • Conners Adult ADHD Rating Scales (CAARS)

A combination of the above assessments and interviews can assist in diagnosing and/or identifying:

  • Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD)

  • An Intellectual Disability

  • Giftedness

  • A Specific Learning Disorder (i.e. Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia)

assessment process

The first step of the assessment process is to undertake an initial clinical interview with your psychologist at thoughts and things. The psychologist will ask you a bunch of questions about your life, such as background of the presenting issue, school/work, family, friends, and childhood experiences. Depending on the age of the client, this session may be conducted with a parent/guardian.


At the end of this session, your psychologist will discuss with you, your/your child’s needs. If the psychologist believes further psychometric assessment would be beneficial, they will book in an appointment as soon as possible to start this process. In the meantime, your psychologist may send you online questionnaires to complete before your assessment session.


Once psychometric assessments are completed, the psychologist will write up a report explaining the results of the assessments and recommendations for further support. If you would like a feedback session to discuss the report in person, you are more than welcome to book this time with your psychologist.
