Psycho-educational Assessments

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.

Cognitive & Intellect

It measures your child's cognitive and intellectual capabilities by evaluating how they use their experiences and thoughts to process, retain and use information.

Learning & Academics

An assessment evaluates specific academic skills in reading, writing, comprehension and math to evaluate the individuals academic aptitude and achievements.


Psycho-educational assessment provides an insight into your child's development and well-being, including their personality and emotional intelligence.

Behavioural Functioning

The assessment evaluates your child’s behaviours and emotional regulation skills. This includes assessing for anxiety, mood concerns, and behavioural changes.

Executive Functioning

An assessment can explore a variety of processing skills, which include working memory, flexible thinking and organization. These skills are critical to personal and academic success.

Does Your Child:

  • Try hard in school only to see that their marks don’t reflect the effort?
  • Consistently miss developmental milestones?
  • Resist parenting attempts and perpetuate behavioural issues?
  • Excessively dislike school and studying?
  • Receive letters from teachers and counsellors expressing concern?
  • Display poor planning, concentration, and organization?
  • Get into trouble for not paying attention?

Why Get a Psycho-educational Assessment?

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.
