Psychological Assessment Services

When you feel physically unwell, you visit a doctor who will examine you and run tests to find the cause of your concern. A psychological (or psychoeducational) assessment functions in the same way for mental health issues.

A psychological assessment serves three essential purposes. It gets to the root cause of symptoms, behaviors, or challenges impacting your life. It reveals a course of intervention and treatment. It also establishes a plan for long-term wellness and fulfillment in life.

Registered Psychologists perform our psychological assessments for teens and adults. Using a combination of standardized tests, observations, and consultations, they can identify language, learning or intellectual disabilities, attention and behavior-related disorders, executive functioning and self-regulation deficits, giftedness, mood and anxiety disorders, and personality disorders.

Based on the assessment, we collaboratively develop a plan to succeed, whether in the classroom, at work, in relationships, or everyday life. The goal is long-term impact on wellness, self-worth, and success.


The Assessment Process

While each assessment is unique to the individual we are working with, the general process works as follows:

  1. We will contact you to establish goals, schedules, and a timeline for the consultation meetings.
  2. Each meeting will be 2-3 hours. The number of sessions required will depend on individual circumstances, but the process typically takes 6- 8 weeks from intake to final report.
  3. We may request access to information from school personnel and other professionals with your consent.
  4. At the end of the assessment, the results and recommendations will be reviewed in a final meeting.
  5. If required, the psychologist can consult with relevant organizations to provide classroom recommendations and development of Individual Program Plans (IPPs).

The Assessment Process

A psychological assessment can be a key part of your wellness journey. It gathers information about how you think, feel, learn, and behave. It can provide you and your mental health team with valuable insights that can guide your course of treatment and get you the support you need in your school or community.
