Psychologists assist when a child has behavioural difficulties or learning challenges.
What to expect from an assessment:
To understand what is happening, a psychologist at our Centre will often spend time observing the child, gathering information from the adults in the child’s life and complete standardized assessments. After all of this information is gathered, the psychologist will provide an explanation of the challenges that a child is experiencing. This explanation may come in the form of a diagnosis if that is what is concluded at the end of the assessment. The Psychologist will then provide a written assessment report to parents providing assessment results, strategies and referrals that will assist the family in supporting their child.
