About the Profiler
Below you will find more information about the Neurodiversity Children Profiler (for parents), and what is included in the reports.
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 Age/Key stage of the child:
- Key Stage 2 (7 – 11 years)
- Key Stage 3 (11 – 14 years)
- Key Stage 4 (14 – 16 years)
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.

Research & Development
The Neurodiversity Children’s Profiler (for parents) is the result of more than 10 years of development, research, and clinical practice.
The Profiler is a screener. It offers a first step to discuss the pattern of strengths and challenges with educators or health professionals and provides you as a parent with some practical guidance.
A diagnosis would need to be made by a specialist who would gather more information and rule in or out other conditions.
The validity component of the Neurodiversity Children’s Profiler (for parents) in relation to the traits associated with the conditions consists of two parts:
1) The definition
2) Data analysis
Where there is an internationally agreed definition of a given disability, then the core to validity of the questions is the degree of agreement between the questions asked and the defining characteristics. To be more specific, if the definition of dyslexia includes “difficulty in the acquisition of reading”, then the questionnaire should have questions about reading and the closer the question is to the words in the definition, including characteristics such as those in DSM-5, then the higher the face validity(i.e. the more acceptable it is).
We ask a series of questions and rank some questions as more indicative than others, and why this is referred to as a screening and not a diagnosis.
We have also used data we have gathered from the people who have completed this over time including collecting data from assessment tools in Profiler itself and comparing the results of Profiler to those who have been given a diagnosis of the conditions.
