We recognize that informal assessment is an essential component of psychological treatment. A thorough understanding of our patients and their life circumstances is instrumental to the treatment process. We also conduct formal, stand-alone Psychodiagnostic Assessments to determine individuals’ psychological status and functioning (e.g., diagnosis) and needs for various purposes other than to inform our own provision of treatment.
Our Psychodiagnostic Assessments are both comprehensive and highly tailored to individuals and their presenting concerns. The following components may be included in the assessment process: (a) direct patient contacts (e.g., interviews, testing, feedback session), (b) meetings with parents/caregivers, (c) meetings with other professionals (e.g., school personnel, health care providers), (d) context-specific behavioural observation (e.g., in-school observation), (e) scoring and interpretation of test results, (f) case formulation, (g) production of a written report (detailed report or assessment summary), and (h) completion of forms (e.g., academic/workplace accommodation forms, Disability Tax Credit form).
Psychoeducational Assessment (available in London, coming soon to Windsor)
We provide formal Psychoeducational Assessments for children, adolescents, and adults at our London location. These assessments involve the examination of cognitive and academic functioning, as well as various information processing skills essential to learning (e.g., memory, processing speed). Our standard Psychoeducational Assessments can identify learning disabilities, and also include basic screening for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), mental health concerns, and adaptive skills deficits. Our assessments can be extended to comprehensively examine areas of functioning that may compromise cognitive performance. The results of Psychoeducational Assessments can guide practical recommendations for supporting learning at home and school or functioning in the workplace. All assessments include the production of a written report that can be used in the school system to assist in the development of an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). For adults, the report can be used to facilitate workplace accommodations.
We offer consultation for health care practitioners who are seeking support with respect to a specific case, a particular area of practice, or an aspect of professional development.
For the majority of our services, we offer the option of attending by phone or via a secure online video platform, called Jane. Jane video accords with all relevant provincial and federal privacy laws. All video data is encrypted in transit and personal information is never recorded or stored. Jane video is also extremely easy to use. No software or downloads are required. You can begin your session with one simple click.
