Raise the Bar Psychology FAQs

Medicare rebates are available if referred under items for ‘Complex Neurodevelopmental Disorders and eligible disabilities’ by a paediatrician or psychiatrist.

No, a referral is not necessary. Our team is available to help you evaluate whether an assessment would be beneficial depending on your needs and circumstances, and they can help determine which assessments would be most useful if an assessment is recommended.

Assessments can help identify your child’s strengths, differences and challenges, what makes them unique, how their brain learns best, and whether they might qualify for additional funding and support. At a minimum, an assessment can help you support them in overcoming barriers, working with their strengths, and identifying what government support might be available to them (if needed).

Most assessments include an initial intake session, one or more assessment sessions with the child (the length depends on the required assessment type), and a feedback session with comprehensive and individualised report four weeks after the final assessment session.

The length of an assessment will depend on the number and type of assessments required, and this will be determined on a case-by-case basis. All assessments include a one-hour intake session and one-hour feedback session with report four weeks after the assessment. Depending on individual needs, the assessment process can vary from one to eight hours.

Educational and neurodevelopmental assessments can identify and support parents understanding of various presenting concerns and neurodevelopmental or learning differences including mental health challenges, learning difficulties, developmental delays in language, cognitive, motor or adaptive functioning skills, and autism and ADHD.
