Cognitive / Neuropsychological / Developmental Assessment Fees
All of our assessment options start with a parent-only intake session. In this session, the clinician will ask you questions around your child's abilities, challenges, and developmental history, and ask you to complete some questionnaires. This session will allow you to learn more about the assessment procedure, and ensure that we tailor the assessment sessions specifically to your child's individual needs.
Your child will then come in for their assessment sessions with the psychologist. The number and length of your child assessment sessions required will depend on the purpose of the assessment (e.g. ASD, ADHD, cognitive or neuropsychological testing).
We also include a parent-only feedback session at the end of all diagnostic / cognitive / neuropsychological assessments. In this session, the clinician will provide you with a copy of the written report and talk you through the assessment results and recommendations. You will also be able to ask questions.
If you are worried that your child has a neurodevelopmental disorder, we suggest families start by visiting their GP to talk through the service options. We also offer a single-session developmental Initial Screener to start you on the right track if you are unsure. The cost of this session is $200 for a 60 min session.
Families who are referred for an ASD assessment service by a paediatrician or child psychiatrist can access Medicare rebates through the Helping Children with Autism (HCWA) program. A rebate of $87.45 is available for up to four diagnostic or assessment sessions and can all be used on the same day if required.

Wellbeing in Mind Psychological Services accepts the following referrals for assessments:
NDIS Assessments (Self- and plan-managed participants only)
The individual or organisation responsible for the account will be issued with an invoice for the full assessment fee at the time of the initial appointment. Payment will be required within 14 days of the invoice via electronic bank transfer or credit card (over the phone). Payment details will be provided on the invoice.
When appointments for assessments are booked, the psychologist usually reserves several hours especially for you. Therefore the following cancellation policy is in place to allow us to offer the allocated time to another person who may be on a waiting list for that appointment.
We require 48 hours notice to reschedule or cancel a session without incurring any extra fees. A $100 fee will be charged for non-attendance or less than 24 hours cancellation of an assessment session.
We understand that sometimes you may be unable to keep an appointment because of sudden illness or an unexpected personal emergency. If this happens to you, please contact us as soon as possible to explain the situation. You may call our office at anytime, even after hours, as we do have an answering service that allows you to leave a message.
