A psychoeducational assessment may be a good starting point to identify an individual’s learning strengths and weaknesses. A member of our team will work collaboratively with you to investigate and measure intellectual abilities, academic skills, behaviour, attention, and social-emotional functioning. In some cases, a student’s profile may lead to a diagnosis of a learning disability and/or Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). In all cases, individualized recommendations are developed to assist with educational planning and goal setting.
The purpose of an intellectual assessment is to identify an individual’s level of cognitive functioning. The results can be used to facilitate decision-making regarding placement in an accelerated, enriched, or gifted program.
