      I also provide a full range of Neuropsychological Assessment Services for children         and adolescents. Typical areas of assessment include:

  • Neuropsychological Development 
  • Executive functioning (attentional control, inhibitory control, working memory, cognitive flexibility, reasoning, problem solving, and planning) 
  • Academic skills - oral language, reading, written language, and mathematics

       To accompany the assessment I privide feedback sessions a detailed and reader              friendly report including home and school specific recommendations and follow-           up support sessions. 

       Waiting List 
       I can usually see pupils within 2-3 weeks of referral. My Liverpool clinic                                  rooms are located at 88 Rodney Street.     
       Making a Referral
       I am more than happy to be contacted via   email  / telephone (07539 081187) to discuss
       potential  referrals. 

       A referral can also be made via a short referral letter outlining the problem and                stating pupil contact details or by completing the online referral form here. 
       Referral letters can be sent by post to 88 Rodney Street, Liverpool, Merseyside,              L1 9AR please mark envelope for the attention of Dr Kerry Ashton Shaw. Please              always ensure pupils and their families are aware that you are making a referral to        this service. 

       My fees are £100.00 per hour for assessment, therapy and liaison work                                (e.g. attending meetings) . Following an initial assessment (usually 90 minutes) a              course of therapy is agreed. Most problems can be addressed with 6-12 sessions. 
       For neuropsychology work my fees are £125.00 per hour. A                                                           neuropsychological assessment involves initial clinical interview,  selection and                application of tests; scoring and interpretation of results; reading of any additional        pertinent information from previous reports and preparation of the report.  As an          example for a Learning Disability assessment this would be in the region of 5-7               hours work with the approximate cost being £625.00 - 875.00. 

       I work with clients who are privately funded / have private health insurance                      or I can be commissioned to provide a service which is free
       at the point of contact for pupils.
