When you book an appointment, the receptionist will ask a few questions so that you are booked with the best psychologist to start your assessment process. During the first appointment, the psychologist will ask you more questions to get a sense of what is going on, decide what tests to do, and plan the assessment process with you.
We often involve more than one psychologist in an assessment. This allows us to use our specialty areas and reach conclusions together. When all the testing is complete, we put the report and action plan together for you.
Our parents understand what is going on with their child’s learning and development and have a plan. If you are eligible, our reports can be used to access Disability Tax Credit and FSCD. Doctors appreciate our clear conclusions and advice. Schools follow our conclusions and recommendations. Lawyers and courts use our reports to help with decisions.
If you are wondering what to tell someone before their assessment, our experience is that people generally understand that they are having trouble and will appreciate that something will be done to help. Just explain to them that we will figure out what is going on and how to help.
