Assessments – Educational and Emotional

Psychoeducational and emotional assessments are used to measure and observe various aspects of an individual’s development. Children or adolescents who are experiencing difficulties at school, for example, may undergo several tests to assess intellectual and scholastic ability, or explore emotional issues. Assessments can determine current levels of functioning and determine strengths and weaknesses, and thus where intervention is needed. Emotional difficulties may also become evident.
  • Cognitive/intellectual assessment
  • Scholastic assessment
  • School readiness assessment
  • Emotional assessment – e.g. behaviour problems, anxiety
  • ADHD
  • Divorce and separation
  • Dyslexia
  • Specific learning disabilities or difficulties
  • School placement
