Our child psychologists offer psychoeducational assessments for children and adolescents. These include both gifted assessments 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 psychoeducational assessment can identify strengths and weaknesses cognitively and academically so that these areas can be targeted through intervention or additional support.
What is involved in a comprehensive psychoeducational assessment?
- An interview with you and your child.
- Review of your child’s report cards and relevant school documentation (IEPs).
- Standardized psychoeducational testing.
- Questionnaires for you, your child, and your child’s teachers to complete.
- Upon the completion of the assessment, you will be invited to attend a feedback meeting to discuss the results of the psychoeducational evaluation. You will also be provided with a written report which will include the results of the assessment as well as recommendations for academic and other support as relevant.
