“To every child – I dream of a world where you can laugh, dance, sing, learn, live in peace and be happy” -Malala Yousafzai
Hello, my name is Karen Proctor. I have been a practicing Psychologist in Canberra for over 25 years, 10 of these in the Education sector working with children and young people.
I love working with kids. I provide assessment and diagnosis of Specific Learning Disorders, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Developmental Delay, and Cognitive ability.
Child Based Assessment
- Cognitive ability and Developmental Delay,
- Specific Learning Disorders (Dyslexia, Dysgraphia),
- Behaviour and Attentional difficulties (ADHD)
I provide a child friendly space that caters for the developmental needs of children. I work flexibly with your child’s needs, at a pace that they are able to attend and concentrate, rather than to a fixed assessment time frame. I want the experience to be a positive one.
Most of all, I want to provide you with information and answers as to why your child is having learning and/or behavioural difficulties. Via a comprehensive psycho-educational assessment, I want to discover how your child learns and processes information. With this information, I want to provide you with strategies to enhance your child’s strengths as well as learning new strategies to help your child achieve their best.
