Welcome to How I Learn

 How I Learn is a Wellington-based educational assessment service run by two psychologists, Emma Levy and Polly Schaverien. We work with children and adults to explore learning potential, areas of academic ability and areas of difficulty. 

People use our assessment services to:

  • Understand why they are facing learning challenges at school, in study or on the job.
  • Diagnose specific learning disorders, such as dyslexia
  • Identify gifted and talented learners
  • Identify intellectual disabilities
  • Support Special Assessment Condition (SAC) applications to NZQA

Unsure if you, or your child, could benefit from an assessment? Unsure if you should even be worried? That's fine!

Contact Emma or Polly to discuss your concerns.  We can talk about what's going on and whether an assessment could be helpful. If we can't help, we will refer you on to another service that might better meet your needs.

We are currently closed for referrals

We are now fully booked for Term 3.  We will re-open for Term 4 referrals on Monday 26th August.  At this time if you are interested in an assessment, please use the contact form that will appear on the contact page.
