Assessment of Individual Learning Strengths and Needs

Over 17% of Ontario students require special education support.

Psychoeducational Assessments

If you are the parent of a child who is struggling at school; a young adult requiring accommodations at college, university or at your place of employment; you require accommodations for entrance or professional licensing exams; or you are an adult with questions about your learning and cognitive abilities, we would be pleased to work with you. We provide psychoeducational assessment of neurodevelopmental disorders including the following:

Learning Disabilities

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Intellectual Disabilities

The Assessment Process

All assessments will be planned in collaboration with you and will include an estimate prior to getting started. It is important to keep in mind that when making a diagnosis it may be important to rule out other conditions (e.g., ADHD vs. an Anxiety Disorder) and to identify co-morbid conditions (e.g., the coexistence of a Learning Disability and ADHD).

All assessments will include a detailed report which describes areas of strength and needs, diagnosis (if applicable) and recommendations. For grade school students, reports are written to facilitate teacher implementation of Individual Education Plans (IEP) and, if needed, formal identification through the Identification, Placement and Review Committee (IPRC) process. For older students, a psychological report may be used to support application for academic accommodations at university or college, or for accommodations during admissions or professional licensing exams.
