Whether you have been referred to us for an assessment or you have questions about your child’s mental wellbeing, it’s our job to give you answers.
A psychoeducational assessment is not as daunting as it may sound. Quite simply, one of our clinical psychologists will carry out a series of standard psychological tests to determine your child’s needs and to ensure that they are matched to the right therapist for treatment.
We can assess the following:
Are you faced with any of the following questions? Does my child have ADHD? Is there something getting in the way of their ability to learn?
If you have questions about your child’s learning development, or if your child is experiencing behavioural, social, or learning difficulties, a psychoeducational assessment will help you identify their unique strengths and weaknesses. We can equip you with the knowledge you need to support your child, both academically and socially.
Alternatively, a teacher or counsellor may have referred you to The LightHouse to answer questions or concerns about your child’s cognitive, academic or behavioural functioning.
We also assess children who are functioning within and above the normal range; this standard assessment can give you an in-depth profile of your child’s behaviour, personality, cognitive and academic abilities, and social skills so that you can help them reach their full potential.
A psychoeducational assessment is typically carried out over a few weeks.
Our fees vary according to the assessments provided. Please contact our assessment specialist to determine what assessment is most suitable for you or your child.
One of our doctoral-level clinical psychologists will conduct the psychoeducational assessment, write the report, and give feedback and recommendations. They have specialist training in conducting and interpreting assessments, differential diagnosis, and neuropsychological etiology. You will receive the most accurate information about your child’s abilities, in addition to detailed recommendations about how best to support your child’s needs at home, in school and in social situations.
