Assessment reports are sent to the client, or where the client is a child, to the client’s parent(s) or legal guardian(s).

Where the invoice has been paid, the report is released as soon as it is ready. Reports usually take approximately 21 to 28 days to be written and released.

Reports are usually sent to clients (or their parent/legal guardian) via email, as an attachment. This means that to share the report with another person or organisation, the client or their parent(s)/legal guardian(s) can forward the email. The original report and a copy are also posted.

Please be aware that reports are retained for 10 years and are then destroyed.

Copies of reports can be requested.

  • Parents/guardians:
    • If you or your child has previously had an assessment at the Seabrook McKenzie Centre and need a copy of the assessment report, please complete the Request for Assessment Report Form (pdf), and email it to us, along with a copy of your identification and include the contact details you would have supplied us at the time of the assessment.
  • Social Workers, teachers or other professionals:

If you work for an organisation (such as Oranga Tamariki, a school or a tertiary institution) and need a copy of a report, you may:

    1. ask the client or their parents/guardians (as applicable) for a copy. If they no longer have a copy, ask them to send us a Request for Assessment Report Form (pdf) as above, to enable them to give you a copy directly.


    1. ask the client to complete the Consent to Disclose Assessment Information  (pdf) (or your organisation’s own consent form) AND, if the report is over 12 months old, ask the client to complete the Request for Assessment Report Form (pdf). Send both forms to us please.
