    Just did a quick google and it looks like a similar system to Vic.

    DD2 had one done at a child psych. It took 2 sessions plus a report. The sessions were funded by Medicare to 50% as she has an acute anxiety condition. Th report wasn't covered by Medicare. All up our out of pocket was about $500.

    If you get a private report done make sure before you go ahead you know that the school will accept it. Our school only accepts reports prepared by its own school psych so even though we went to the most reputable one we could find it's only of interest to her teacher not the school generally.

    Good luck. The testing isn't too bad. Our psych turned it into a game for DD and she enjoyed it.

    Is he in a state school? In SA we would have to put in a referral to the department requesting a test and providing reasons why, then just wait until the area psychologist is available. It can take a loooooong time, as there is, of course, high demand and low number of qualified professionals. Children are prioritized according to need.

    In your case, with an already diagnosed condition, in SA he would be likely to be a fairly high priority therefore seen within a term. If there are severe behavioral issues where other students/staff are at risk then he would be fast tracked even more.

    In other cases, I've waited over a year for students I've referred, and in many cases parents get sick of waiting and go private. HTH.

    That's what we were told too. So we went private only to then to told the school wouldn't formally accept the report of a private psych. Sooooo frustrating. But our principal is a PITA.

    My DS had one done as part of his assessment when diagnosed with ASD.
    Did your DS have one then as well? Or was it just too long ago?

    Yep, that seems really unfair to me. From memory, and this may be wrong, but for certain 'conditions' we require two separate diagnoses if people go private/don't go through the department. Not sure why.

    He was dx at 2 so they didnt do one along with the assessment as they said he was just too young.

    He is starting school next year but we hafto start transitioning in 4 weeks time, weekly visits and i need to get all assessments done Again (speech, OT, psych, and the IQ test plus a letter from paed)

    All of that is gonna cost me a fortune, there is no funding left for me to use. So i cant really afford the IQ test on top of it all. So if the school want an IQ test they will need to do it!

    Stressfullllllllll

    I'm going through similar because the general consensus is that my DS is grossly under diagnosed.

    The last assessment was done with a psych and speech pathologist. It costs $1300 all up imcluding the report. I got a chunk of it back from medicare although was still expensive. So I wonder if your psych will do it as part of the assessment they carry out?
