Assessments for Looked After and Adopted Children

The Child Psychology Service offers a range of packaged and bespoke assessments to meet your individual needs. Each assessment package includes a written report, a face to face jargon-free feedback session and an action plan of recommendations about how to help the child concerned.


Adoptive parents and Foster Carers
Are you concerned about your child’s well-being or behaviour?

Our psychological assessment packages are designed to help you, your child and others who work with him/her to understand and manage the problem more effectively.

All of our adoption support services can be paid for via the Adoption Support Fund. Do get in touch and we’d be happy to guide you through every step of the process.

Social Workers
Would you like a psychological understanding of what a particular child needs from their placement?
Is one of the children under your care struggling at school?
Are people having difficulty managing the emotions or behaviour of one of the children you care for?

The Child Psychology Service can provide a bespoke assessment package to help.


Do you have a looked after or adopted child in your class:
Who is not responding to the techniques you’ve tried either in relation to their learning or their behaviour?
A child who isn’t learning as well as you think they could?
Or simply a child whose needs are difficult to figure out?

It may be useful to consider commissioning a psychological assessment to help answer some of these mysteries.
