Information for teachers

Our innovative approach helps to assess young children who are experiencing emotional, cognitive and behavioural problems.

We can assess children between the ages of four and seven who do not have a pre-existing diagnosis, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, and who have challenges in one or more of the following areas:

  • attention
  • behaviour
  • emotion
  • communication and social interaction
  • memory
  • self-regulation.

Referral and assessment process

To refer a child in your school to the NDAU:

  1. Invite the child’s parents to view this website, or pass them a copy of the Parent information sheet.
  2. Discuss with the family whether they are interested in taking part.
  3. If they are, contact us for further information and referral documentation.

Once we have received the referral documents, we will contact the family to arrange the appointment. We will then inform you of the appointment details.

Report of the assessment

Six to eight weeks after the final appointment date, we will send you a report of the child’s assessment results. You should then meet with the child’s parents or carers to explore and interpret the child’s outcomes in the broader context of your own evaluations of the child’s strengths and challenges.
