Our research investigates and addresses the needs of children who show emotional, cognitive, or behavioural difficulties and problems.

Our assessments explore your child’s skills with attention, memory, language and emotion recognition.

We are based in the Centre for Human Developmental Science at the School of Psychology, and we investigate the emotional, cognitive and social processes involved in developmental problems in children.

If you would like to refer your child to the NDAU, you will first need to discuss this with their school.
