IMPACT is a leading institute in Pakistan offering comprehensive psychological assessments; who uses tests with a wide range of school going children in private and public sectors. We administer tests and interpret scores in a quantitative and qualitative manner, followed by recommendations.
Psychological tests are used in different areas of life to assess an individual’s ability, achievement level, personality and behavior. Tests are mainly used to assess children in schools having learning difficulties (dyslexia, ADHD, Dysgraphia), with developmental delays, language delays, having behavioral problems.Psychological testscan be divided in various categories – tests of ability, achievement, speech and language, aptitude, personality and behavior.

Psychological assessment is the first step that we take to start our work with a child having difficulty in any area. This initial screening helps us to determine a baseline of the person’s difficulties related to any particular area. On the basis of these findings, we provide recommendation for the person, which helps them acquire allowances in terms of grading.
Our assessment further helps students to gain concessions/adjustments for international standards such as Cambridge, O & A level, GCSE’s and for other admissions for higher education outside Pakistan.
We are the largest institute which is associated with major schools to conduct these assessments. Our assessment does not only deal with I.Q., testing but also directed to find achievement levels, language and speech difficulties, reading and writing problems, neurological functions, visual-motor delays, personality assessment, aptitude testing and behavioral issues. We do an extensive assessment to determine each and every function of the brain and personality.
