A thorough and extensive psychoeducational assessment (also called a psych-ed, a psycho-ed, or an Educational Assessment or even a Learning Disabilities assessment) is important to your child's education. We offer a variety of assessment strategies and a detailed written report to explain the support your child may need in their educational setting. You will meet with Dr. McCabe initially and then with a team of psychometrists available to complete the tests, the assessment will be completed quickly and thoroughly over a few meetings. Dr. McCabe will provide feedback to you regarding the outcome, and will also go to a school meeting to meet with the teaching team and parents to develop a thorough understanding and implications of the results.It is important to have an updated (adult) assessment for students needing accommodations at post-secondary school.
Related to the psychoeducational assessment is assessment for Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD or ADD as it is sometimes called). Assessment for ADHD is done in conjunction with a psycho-ed, but can also be completed separately.

Often your family doctor may suggest a psychologist but a referral isn't necessary. Although not OHIP covered, many benefit plans recognize the importance of good mental health and provide coverage for psychological services.
