Assessment Batteries

Contact Us

The three most common assessments batteries that PECS is requested to conduct are:

  • Comprehensive Psychometric Assessment
  • Comprehensive Psycho-Educational Assessment
  • Abbreviated Memory Assessment

All three of these standardised assessment batteries are provided at a heavily discounted price when compared to the costs that would be charged according to the APS Recommended Fee Schedule.

Furthermore, rebates are available from almost all Private Health Insurers which further reduces the cost incurred by the patient / client.
