Unfortunately, paperwork is something we can never get away from, however, we do endeavor to keep paperwork to the minimum essentials. For each psychological assessment that is administered for a child, we require the parent or guardian to complete and sign a consent form. If a school is involved then it can be helpful if a teacher completes a teachers report form. To make the task a bit easier, below are links to both our own forms as well as the forms used for assessments commissioned under the National Educational Psychological Services Scheme (NEPS).
PALS Referral and Consent Form To be completed by parents of children being assessed
Adult Consent Form This form is used when the person to be assessed is old enough (18+) not to require parental consent.
Teachers Report Form Used by teachers/tutors to give us their perspective of any possible difficulties the person to be assessed may be experiencing.
Preschool Report Form Used by preschool teacher to give us their perspective of any possible difficulties the child to be assessed may be experiencing.
Scheme for Commissioning of Psychological Assessments (SCPA) Forms for NEPS Funded Assessments
The following forms are taken directly from the Department of Education and Science (DES) (www.education.ie) website, for use with the NEPS SCPA scheme.
