Neurodiversity Children’s Profiler
Neurodiversity Children's Profiler (for parents)
Who is this for?
This Profiler is aimed at parents or guardians of a child or young person from the age of 7 years to 16 years of age.
There are three versions of this Profiler depending on the Key stage of the child:
- Key Stage 2
- Key Stage 3
- Key Stage 4
What areas does it look at?
The Neurodiversity Children's Profiler provides you with a picture of the child’s strengths and challenges overall and is broken down into seven sections:
- Emotions and Feelings
- Attention, Organisation and Time Management
- Speaking, listening and understanding
- Memory, vision, auditory and senses
- Physical coordination
It also provides a profile showing if there are traits associated with:
- Dyspraxia ( also known as Developmental Coordination Disorder)
- Autism Spectrum Condition
- Developmental Language Disorder
Will it give a diagnosis?
A diagnosis of a neurodiverse condition such as Dyslexia or ADHD can only be provided by appropriately qualified specialists. The report from the Neurodiversity Children's Profiler will confirm areas of challenges and strengths in different areas and note similarities of the pattern of traits relating to neurodiverse conditions. The report can be used to explore adjustments and support for your child at home and can be a basis to discuss if a further referral may be necessary.
What do I get if I complete it?
You will have:
- An overall picture of your child’s ‘spiky’ profile.
- Strengths and challenges for each section and some tips to help
- A wide range of practical resources depending on your responses.
