How Can A Psychoeducational Assessment Help?

 
A psychoeducational assessment can provide you with helpful information about your child’s academic performance, learning skills and cognitive profile. An assessment can give you valuable information on a number of school performance areas such as cognitive skills, language, memory, attention and others. The results of the assessment help teachers, counsellors and school boards to design an academic program and develop classroom strategies that build on your child’s learning strengths while providing supports and accommodations in weaker areas. Findings and diagnoses from our psychoeducational assessment services are accepted by both public and Catholic school boards to identify a range of potential learning challenges which include:
 
  • Anxiety
  • Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder
  • Autism
  • Depression
  • Learning Disabilities
  • Pervasive Developmental Disorders
 

The Psychoeducational Assessment Process

 
A complete psychological assessment starts with an initial parent interview to review developmental history and current concerns. It also includes three testing sessions with the student; each approximately 2 hours long. When the testing is complete, results and any diagnoses are shared with parents during a feedback meeting. At that time, parents are given a written report that can be shared with the school or medical personnel.
 
 

Assessment Services For Gifted Students

 
Do you think that your son or daughter is gifted and needs more enrichment than what the school is providing?
 
An assessment to determine eligibility for a gifted or enriched program requires one testing session with the student. These assessments are briefer and include an evaluation of cognitive profile along with a short academic summary. Results and recommendations are shared with parents during a feedback meeting and parents are given a written report that can be shared with the school.
 
 

Fees For Assessment Services

 
Although psychological assessment services are not currently covered by OHIP, most major medical insurance plans will cover the services of a registered psychologist. We can assist with the insurance forms needed for obtaining reimbursement for the assessment. Please note that the assessment services from our registered psychologist can also be claimed as a medical tax credit.
