A specialized assessment is a thorough individual assessment that gathers information from a variety of sources to be used in formulating an individual profile detailing the person’s pattern of strengths, challenges, behaviours and life circumstances so that specific suggestions and recommendations can be made.
Psychoeducational assessments are ideal for students or individuals struggling to succeed academically or in the workplace despite their effort and motivation. Frequent presenting concerns include struggles with time management, focus, memory, anxiety, behaviour, social functioning, specific academic skills, and/or achievement that is not commensurate with the degree of effort expended.
Developmental assessments are valuable for individuals applying for AISH (Assured Income for the Severely Handicapped) and PDD (Persons with Developmental Disabilities) funding and supports. These assessments focus on documenting an individual’s cognitive abilities (IQ) and adaptive skills and supplying the diagnostic identification required by these programs.
Assessment services are available for clients aged 5 to 99.
