Independent Psychological Assessments:
Obtain an independent opinion about psychological impairment and disability.
We have extensive experience conducting comprehensive and objective psychological assessment for third parties such as insurance companies, lawyers, businesses/organizations, and regulatory bodies. Such assessments provide a comprehensive clinical formulation that includes the identification of mental disorders, symptom exaggeration or malingering, level of psychological impairment and disability, causality/etiology, and disability management recommendations.
Identify Giftedness and Learning Disabilities.
We offer psycho-educational assessments for children and adolescents. These include both giftedness and learning disability identification. These assessments evaluate thinking/reasoning abilities and underlying psychological processes (e.g. memory, attention, executive functioning), academic achievement, behaviour and social-emotional functioning. A psycho-educational assessment can identify strengths and weaknesses cognitively and academically so that these areas can be targeted through intervention or additional support.
