Comprehensive Psychology Assessments
We conduct diagnostic assessments of children, adolescents, and adults for cognitive and clinical conditions, using validated and reliable psychological tests.
Each assessment includes an initial clinical interview, testing session(s), a comprehensive written report and report feedback session (where our clinicians will explain the results, give recommendations, and provide an opportunity for you to ask questions).
We conduct assessments for Intellectual Disability, adaptive functioning, Specific Learning Disorders (e.g. dyslexia), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
Cognitive screening of older adults is also available.

Psychology in Aged Care
Lifespan Health have a team of Psychologists who visit people who reside in participating Residential Aged Care Facilities (RACFs) across the Sunshine Coast and Gympie region.
Our Psychologists are trained in working with an older population. This includes understanding the specific needs of older adults, such as dementia, adjustment to living in aged care, depression, anxiety, and grief and loss.
We use an Integrative Model of Care which means we work in close collaboration with carers, families, and RACF staff towards the improvement of older adult's mental health.
This program is fully funded by the CQWBSC Primary Health Network (PHN). This means there are no costs for older adults to receive psychological intervention in participating RACFs.
Lifespan Health is currently delivering support for people residing in participating RACFs. This program aims to address social isolation and loneliness as a result of COVID-19. Our trained support workers offer conversational support, and links through technology to family and friends.
Please contact us if you would like further information about these programs.
