We offer a variety of assessment services, including:
At the Nelson Clinic, we offer a streamlined ADHD assessment and treatment service.
ADHD assessments are conducted by trained psychologists and if treatment is recommended an appointment can be booked with our ADHD Coaching team and/or our Psychiatry team.
The Nelson Clinic can provide psychological testing to meet the needs of a wide range of referral questions. Clients may need psychometric assessment for a particular agency, employer, or for their own self-knowledge. Testing can be used to clarfiy diagnostic questions and can be used to increase and person's understand of themselves and factors that affect their thought, feelings and behaviours. Psychological assessments are also routinely provided in treatment planning, medico-legal process, ACC-related capacity assessments, ACC mental injury claims, and sensitive claims-related supported assessments. We do not provide Family Court assessment reports, though some of our contracted clinical psychologists may be available to do so in their independent practises.
