Psychoeducational Assessments for Youth and Adolescents Ages 7-17
A deep understanding of learning disabilities and behavioural disorders is what we can offer to our young patients and their families.
Psychoeducational Assessments for children and youth aged 7 -17 tests for math disability, reading disability, writing disability, language disorder, ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, anxiety disorders, depression, developmental coordination disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, conduct disorder, selective mutism, and intellectual disability. A psychoeducation assessment can also assess for children and adolescents who may be gifted.
Our clinicians use the best testing measures, and a collaborative approach that includes parent and teacher input, to identify or rule out learning disabilities, behavioural disorders or simply delays in thinking for children and youth aged 7-17 years old.
Using comprehensive psychoeducational assessments, our clinicians make the best possible recommendations for treatment (if necessary) as well as recommendations for accommodation and/or modifications in school curriculum.
Through our clinical team’s years of combined experience, we have identified the most common behavioural concerns that parents or guardians have that are well-served by a psychoeducational assessment.

- Inability to focus, self-recognized or identified by others
- Inability to play appropriately with others
- Seeming sad or overly worried
- Being argumentative or bartering with requests at home
