If you or a teacher feels like your child is not making the progress you would expect or is behind in cognitive, behavioural or emotional functions, you may want to speak to a therapist about a comprehensive psychoeducational assessment. This evaluation is conducted by an experienced professional who will examine your son or daughter’s developmental history and current skill level, and then produce a report detailing where they are lagging behind as well as how they can catch up with their peers in school. This kind of assessment offers concrete solutions for parents so that their child won’t continue to struggle academically, socially and behaviourally.
A psychoeducational assessment provides insight into your child's emotional, behavioural, cognitive and academic proficiency to determine if there are any ‘undiagnosed’ learning disabilities. The results of these assessments will help parents and teachers better understand your child’s needs, as well as help the child qualify for additional resources and support in all educational settings throughout their life.
