Learning difficulties affect the way individuals learn and process information. Conditions are typically life long with varying symptoms from one individual to another. Early assessment and intervention by trained professionals are key to deliver meaningful results.
Learning Discoveries offers a range of psychological services to assist children and adults with learning disabilities. We take a personalised approach with each of our clients to deliver individually tailored therapies. With our extensive experience, we are able to address different types of disabilities and disorders.
All educational assessments start with a diagnostic interview to gain a complete developmental and family history. We then move on to psychometric testing to gauge literacy and numeracy skills. We take a holistic approach and tailor interventions that are most appropriate for the individual.
Central Auditory Processing Disorder
Individuals diagnosed with Central Auditory Process Disorder have problems comprehending and understanding speech. This is because parts of the brain do not function appropriately. The first step is to assess the severity of the disorder through an auditory processing assessment which is available in our facilities.
Inhibition of Primitive Reflexes
Primitive reflexes are automatic movements that are directed by the Central Nervous System (CNS). Transformation of the primitive reflexes may fail for some individuals which contribute to underdevelopment of academic, emotional, social and behavioural abilities. We offer full assessments at our facilities.
