What is a psychological or psychoeducational assessment?
A psychological or psychoeducational assessment is a process of gathering information that helps to understand how an individual learns and processes information. Assessments can be completed with children, adolescents, and adults to potentially identify what might be impacting their academic, social, occupational, or overall psychological well-being.
An assessment includes standardized tests (e.g., intelligence tests, tests of academic achievement), observations, rating scales, detailed history, and consultation. The process may lead to the identification of language or learning disabilities, attention and behaviour-related disorders (e.g., ADHD), executive functioning and self-regulation deficits, intellectual disabilities, giftedness, or mood and anxiety disorders.
Assessment can provide a profile of your individual cognitive strengths and areas of need that we can use to collaboratively develop a plan to succeed in the classroom, at work, and in your everyday life.
