Concerns about ADHD? Learning Disability? Emotional or Behavioural Problems? Giftedness?
A psychological assessment can be a useful tool that gives you more information about your learning style and provides you with strategies to build on your strengths and compensate for your difficulties. Accommodations can be made in the classroom and for tests and school work when assessment results support a need for assistance. This testing is not necessary for everyone, however, if teachers, doctors, or parents have noted concerns about school or work performance, assessments can be a source of finding more help.
Rates for services are $165 per hour for private clients. Schools and other agencies may negotiate a separate fee.
Types of Assessments
Examine one's learning style and discover strengths and weaknesses in working with language and visual tasks.
Determine one's level of functioning in the areas of Math, Reading, and Writing. These are often combined with a Cognitive assessment to better determine if a learning disability exists.
Emotional and Behavioral Assessments
Examine one's current levels of emotional and behavioral functioning for possible diagnoses or to inform parents and professionals about appropriate intervention strategies.
Often times, an assessment will incorporate two or three of these areas to gain a better understanding of the client and to inform treatment and recommended strategies.
