Services For Children
‘Helping children comprehend the neurotypical world’
Children with ASD, Developmental Delay, Intellectual Disability and other diagnoses think outside the square. That is, they process information in a different way to typically developing children. This can mean they think in new and innovative ways. Such individuals could be described as having a diffability; a difference in abilities, rather than lacking in ability.
Outside the Square Psychology provides the following services for individuals:
• Autism diagnostic assessment (for a brochure, click here)
• Cognitive assessment (for a brochure, click here)
• 1:1 skills building sessions
• Assistance with understanding their diagnosis
A psychologist may work directly with a child if their age and capability level mean that this would be beneficial. Areas of focus may be:
• anxiety management
• self-care and life-skills development
• social skills

Although not our primary area of focus, an Outside the Square Psychologist has experience with adolescents, teenagers and adults, and can work 1:1 with these age groups also.
Many of our services attract Medicare and Private Health Rebates.
