BrainTalk Psychological Services is a child and adolescent assessment service that can deliver cognitive and educational assessments as well as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) assessments. Focussing on the ages 8-18 years, we work collaboratively with children, families, and their teachers to help identify reasons why children might be struggling with their learning or social interactions. Based in Melbourne, BrainTalk can conduct assessments on school campuses, at consulting rooms in East Melbourne, or at the Victorian Children's Clinic in Malvern.
