Psychoeducational Assessments




What Is a Psychoeducational Assessment?

A psychoeducational assessment can also be called a learning or an academic assessment. It includes interview questions and tests that look at how you or your child learns and functions. Whether you are a child or an adult, this type of assessment helps us learn about learning styles, thinking styles, behaviour, development, and emotional well-being. People commonly seek this type of assessment when they notice struggles with learning, attention, disruptive behaviour, or delayed development.

Purpose of This Assessment?

In a psychoeducational assessment, you or your child work with a psychologist to find strengths and areas of growth. This information is then used to provide a diagnosis (if applicable), describe reasons for the challenges, and outline strategies for improvements. A learning diagnosis can help you or your child get an individualized program plan (IPP), home accommodations, workplace accommodations, and/or government funding. The main goal of a psychoeducational assessment is to help you learn more about yourself or your child and to identify the supports needed along the way to achieve their optimal potential!

We recognize that individuals have different needs. Assessments are tailored to individual needs, but often are composed of 1 to 2 hours of clinical interview, 6 to 9 hours of testing, 4 to 6 hours of report writing, and 2 hours for a debriefing. Testing sessions tend to be booked in two or three 3-hour segments. Most assessments can be completed, from start to finish, in 6 to 8 weeks.

Services are billed at the standard rate of $220/hour and may be covered by benefit plans. Our Assessment Coordinator will provide you with an estimated rate, process, and schedule for your assessment.
