Psychological Assessment London Ontario
(Children and Adolescents)
Psychoeducational Assessment, including psychological and/or educational assessment, provides insights into presenting cognitive and learning difficulties, and informs and guides recommendations and decision making strategies. Psychoeducational Assessment of children and adolescents may include psychological and/or educational assessment for:
ADHD and Executive Functioning
The purpose of psychoeducational assessment is to determine a student's strengths and needs in terms of their cognitive and academic functioning. This information may be used as the basis for developing individual education plans (IEP) including making accommodations and/or modifications and providing supports and tools which a student may require in order to reach their full potential in learning.
Assessments begin with an interview with the student and their parents, caregivers or guardians to gather background information and to determine what assessments may be required. Typically, a cognitive and academic achievement assessment is completed, followed by an assessment of factors that may be impacting a student's learning, for example, attention, behaviour, mental health, phonological awareness, or memory etc.
All the assessment information is then combined and interpreted to provide you with a formulation of the student's learning profile in a report. You may then wish to share this report with your school or learning institution, or with other professionals.
