learning disability, ADHD or Dyslexia

It’s common for children to encounter issues or struggle at school occasionally. However if your child continues to struggle it could be rooted in something more serious, like a learning disability, ADHD, executive functioning, memory and processing issues.. It can also help identify other mental health issues that can be hidden, but still impact learning, such as depression and anxiety disorders.

What is a Psychoeducational Assessment?

Psychoeducational assessments aim to describe an individual’s learning profile (strengths and weaknesses) and psychological functioning. This includes an assessment of their cognitive (thinking) abilities and academic achievement. These assessments also evaluate emotional, social, and behavioural characteristics that can influence their functioning.

A Psychoeducational Assessment is a critical piece in identifying children with learning and behavioural difficulties, as well as children who may be academically talented (gifted).

How long Does a Psychoeducational Assessment take?

As the process is comprehensive, assessments can range between 6-8 hours. Testing may be broken up into several segments/days.

What will I know after the Psychoeducational Assessment?

The assessment will help determining your child’s core strengths and areas of need. It also helps provide recommendations for managing learning, behavioural and/or social emotional issues. The information obtained is consolidated into a formal report that is provided to you. The psychologist will explain the results to you in simple, understandable terms during a review session. During this time, the psychologist will also review and recommendations and next steps.

Following your review, a written report will be provided. The can then be provided to your child’s school/teacher so they can use the information and recommendations from the report to help your child in the classroom.
