Our Psychologists are trained in the assessment of children’s learning ability. These assessments can provide insight into a persons learning needs. 

Trauma-Informed Psychological Wellbeing Assessment

The Hummingbird Centre is able to provide Trauma-Informed Psychological Wellbeing Assessments for people of all ages who have been exposed to trauma.

This assessment is informed by the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT) and contains a complete developmental history and collated information from a wide range of sources. An NMT certified clinician will use this information to complete a NMT report including a functional brain map which provides a visual representation of the persons needs and strengths. The assessment process helps to identify domains of functioning that are either under-developed or dysfunctional which in turn helps guide the selection and sequencing of developmentally sensitive and neurobiologically guided interventions. These assessments assist families and services by prescribing therapeutic interventions which can be implemented throughout the persons day and across various settings.
