DIAGNOSTIC ASSESSMENTS


Psychological Assessments, Neuropsychological Assessments & Psychoeducational Assessments
are offered to assess the following areas and conditions: Intellectual Ability, Achievement / Learning Difficulties, Neurodevelopmental Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, and Depressive Disorders. 


A psychological evaluation process is complex and requires a comprehensive approach.  
First, it's important to take the time necessary to get to know the child and his/her family, specific concerns related to learning and behaviour, and the child’s educational, psychological and medical history before conducting a thorough and comprehensive psychological evaluation. 
Following, the child receives an individualized assessment battery based upon his/her specific needs which forms the cornerstone of our psychological assessments.

Would you like to find out if your child
is intellectually gifted or
has specific academic concerns?

 

INTELLECTUAL ABILITY ASSESSMENT

Determines child’s cognitive functioning (IQ) and broad based academic achievement.
If other concerns are identified, a comprehensive evaluation may be recommended.
This type of assessment does not provide a clinical diagnosis.

1.     Intake Consultation / parents-only interview (to determine your child’s needs.) 
2.     Testing session with child (1 session; 2–3 hours)
3.     Clinician’s scoring, interpretation, and report-writing
4.     Parents-only feedback session with a full report (1 hour session; 2 weeks post-testing.)


Or would you like to have your child
clinically diagnosed for
ADHD, Dyslexia, or perhaps an anxiety disorder
such as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder?
