Development and Learning Assessments for Children and Teenagers | Priory Wellbeing Centres Dubai and Abu Dhabi

Neurodevelopment and Psycho-Educational Assessments in Abu Dhabi and Dubai

At our Priory Wellbeing Centre in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, we conduct thorough diagnostic assessments and use a bio-psychosocial model to identify biological, environmental, psychological, social & academic factors that contribute to your child's difficulty.

We understand that emotional, behavioural, developmental disorders and psychiatric illness can often have profound and far-reaching impact – affecting all aspects of your child's life and their family, whether that be home, school, relationships and social life.

Our experienced psychiatrists, psychologists, occupational therapists and speech and language therapists will always keep your child's unique situation in mind when assessing their individual needs. Based on the assessments carried out by our professionals, your childs treatment plan will be bespokely tailored to your and your child’s situation.

The different diagnostic assessments are:

1. Developmental assessments

2. Educational assessments

The first time a child or young person comes to our service, they receive an intake evaluation by a psychiatrist. At the end of this assessment, the psychiatrist will be able to identify areas of need and make recommendations for further assessment and treatment tailored to the child & family.

Based on your child's needs, your psychiatrist may refer to another member of the multidisciplinary team, e.g., psychologist or speech and language therapist.

All assessment, referral and treatment decisions are taken in collaboration with the child and family.
