The majority of our referrals come from local authorities and solicitors for assessments taking place in court proceedings or the public law outline (PLO).
This usually involves our psychologists assessing parents for psychological issues, cognitive functioning or learning disabilities. If the parent is assessed as having a learning disability, they may require a specialist ParentAssess or PAMS assessment.
Our psychologists also carry out assessments of children to determine whether the trauma they may have encountered has impacted on them psychologically. They also carry out assessments of sibling and parent-child attachment.
