Marilena qualified as an independent psychometrist in 2005. She also holds a Master’s Degree in Paediatric Neurodevelopment and an Honours Degree in Education.


Marilena’s philosophy is that psychometric testing should be used as a tool for bridging the gap between a child’s performance and their potential. The standard cognitive, educational and intelligence tests are done but she also uses other tests to monitor development, assess for school readiness, advise on subject and career choices and to assess attention.

A new addition to her test battery is emotional intelligence and personality assessments for children. This helps learners to understand their default ways of operating so that they can be guided to take advantage of their natural abilities to make learning easier and relationships better.

More information on the various tests can be found at:
