Cognitive Skill Assessment
We assess the brain-based skills needed for reading, spelling, learning and problem solving, which includes concentration and attention. These Foundational Learning Skills include visual and auditory abilities, revealing what is deficient and how this links to poor academic performance.
Tomatis® Listening Profile
Unlike a hearing test, we assess the listening ability, checking how the brain receives, processes and interprets auditory information. We can tell if recurring ear infections, glue ear and grommets may have hampered sound transmission to the brain, and how this relates to learning difficulties.
Visagraph™ Reading Profile
The KingsFisher Institute is the only centre in New Zealand that can perform this assessment.
Unlike an eye test, the Visagraph™ measures eye movements whilst reading including comprehension. It reveals the hidden hurdles in poor reading efficiency.
