Psych Assessment - Part 1

Violet had her 1st part of her Psych Assessment this morning. She is using The Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence Assessment.

I stayed out of the room while she had the assessment as asked and filled out an Adaptive Behaviour Assessment Form.

It only went for 1 hour and Psychologist broke this up into 2 half hour intervals. When she came out to see me half way she was not keen to go back into the assessment room again and I had to carry her in and settle her.

Her next appointment for 2nd part is next Friday 19th March, I am hoping she can complete remainder at that appointment as I don't see much point in breaking it all up and dragging it out but then I do understand that Violet needs to remain cooperative during these assessments to get an accurate picture of her.

Violet was quite upset by the time she came out the second time and was very eager to go straight home. So here's hoping next week goes a little better!

I hope you can get it all finished next week. Better to just get it over with in my opinion! How long until you get the results?

I agree Alison! She said about a month!

Hope the next goes well and she is happier. Good luck. What are you hoping to learn from the test?

Gwen, This assessment determines if Violet will be eligible for any funding for school next year.

I hope she doesn't mind it so much next time, poor thing!

Hoping the remaining testing goes well & that you get the funding you need.

Hi Sarah,
I am another who agrees it's best to get it all out of the way!
S has his testing next Monday. It's such a catch 22. Of course I want him to do well in the testing, but on the other hand a lower result will possibly lead to better funding....
Good luck for the next round!

Hope she feels better about it at the next one. It certainly is a lot of pressure for them.
