Range of Learning Difficulties Assessed
If you suspect your child is affected by a learning or developmental disability, we’ll assist you in accurately identifying and managing this, from more typical attentional difficulties to executive and comprehension difficulties.
If your child has been affected by cognitive changes as a result of a head injury or other impact where the brain may have been affected, we can assist you in managing this long-term.
Get in touch today to enquire about our services. We’d love hear from you.

Is it for my kid?
Designed for the general population.
Paediatric Neuropsychology is for anyone who is curious about his or her child or children and wants to know their performance compared with the general population.
Why Jurmaine Health
With clear results we identify strengths and weaknesses, using these insights to assist and enhance your child’s personal and educational development. The Paediatric Neuropsychology, provided by Jurmaine Health, is performed by a group of friendly neuropsychological professionals.
With a more personalised approach to psychological health, you’ll have the chance to sit down with a trained, clinical neuropsychologist and discuss your children test results, helping to better understand the specifics of the metrics and data points provided to you.

What are the location options for assessments?
If you can’t make it to any of our 4 sites in Preston, Melbourne CBD, Dandenong and Ballarat, we also provide off-site assessments – where we can visit you at your home or office. Usually, there is no charge involved if the site is within 100km of Melbourne CBD.
Does Medicare cover your services? Can I claim your services on my private health cover?
Unfortunately, Neuropsychology Assessments are still considered a specialist service, and are not covered by Medicare or Private Health. However, it may be possible to claim Psychological and Cognitive Rehabilitation as well as Counselling/Therapy with Private Health Insurance, depending on your cover.
