Paediatric Assessment

Lesia provides comprehensive neuropsychological assessment for children and teenagers (16-years-old and younger) in Whakatāne and throughout New Zealand with neurodevelopmental disorders, neurological disorders, acquired brain injuries, and/or cognitive difficulties in a culturally sensitive and trauma-informed way. 


Domains assessed during the paediatric neuropsychological assessments include attention, memory, visuospatial cognition, language, executive functioning, and socioemotional development.

Why Pediatric Neuropsychological Assessments?

Illuminate Cognitive Landscapes: As a Neuropsychologist, I employ a range of specialized tests and observations to shed light on your child's cognitive strengths, challenges, and unique potential. Our assessments unravel the intricate tapestry of their cognitive world, paving the way for targeted interventions and tailored support.

Early Detection, Lifelong Benefits: Identifying developmental difficulties early on empowers us to provide timely interventions that nurture growth. From attention and memory to language and social skills, our assessments provide through understanding of your child’s functioning and potential.

Personalized Strategies: Just as no two fingerprints are alike, your child's cognitive profile is one-of-a-kind. I craft personalized strategies that celebrate their strengths and address any obstacles, fostering a well-rounded development.

Supporting Families: Our journey does not end with assessments. I am here to guide you, the caregivers, in understanding and nurturing your child's cognitive journey, helping you create an environment that nurtures their growth.

Celebrating Individuality:

Every child is unique, and my assessments honor and celebrate their individuality, allowing them to shine in their own extraordinary way.

What You Can Expect

Comprehensive Insights: Through a blend of assessments and interactions, I paint a vivid picture of your child's cognitive landscape, helping you understand their unique strengths and areas of potential growth.


Informed Decision-Making: Armed with comprehensive insights, you can make informed choices about your child's education, therapies, and overall wellbeing.


Support Beyond Diagnoses: Our journey can extend beyond assessments too. I can collaborate with you and others (e.g., school, therapists etc.) to create a nurturing environment that fosters growth, resilience, and holistic wellbeing.
