Michael is a highly qualified psychologist with over 20 years’ experience helping children with learning difficulties. Michael is the only psychologist in Adelaide who focuses solely on educational assessments. He’s passionate about child learning/behavioural issues, but also about the family’s wellbeing as a whole.

With your permission, we can also liaise with your child’s school to assist in developing a personalised learning plan for your child. Since we make use of a reliable and comprehensive digital assessment system through iPads, our educational assessments also take less time and are more accurate and reliable.
