Child IQ Testing
& Academic Assessments in a personalised and friendly service
The Sydney Child Assessment and Testing Service (SCATS) is a service providing IQ and academic testing for children in Sydney.
We are dedicated to providing a comfortable and supportive testing environment for children aged between 3 and 16 years.
IQ and academic testing provides important information for making educational choices, and is often done so that children can be placed in the appropriate learning environments. Testing is also a helpful way for parents to learn about their child's cognitive strengths and weaknesses, and preferred learning style. A report provides objective verification of a child's academic needs and details recommendations so that a child's learning environment can be adapted successfully to best fit their cognitive ability.
