Schedule an appointment
Assessment appointments We have a team of psychometrists available to test daytime and limited evenings. We do not recommend testing elementary age children in the evening as they are tired from their day at school. We recognize that secondary and post secondary students benefit from the flexibility of completing the assessment around their classes. Our Office Manager will work with your schedule to help make the appointments convenient.
Counselling appointments do not require a referral. Counselling is available Wednesdays and Thursdays. Call the office or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up your appointment (you can also use the "Contact" tab above and fill out a form). If our Office Manager is not at her phone please leave a confidential message and you will be called back within 24 hours except weekends (519)880-2178.
Individuals who request this assessment meet with Dr. McCabe for an intake interview and are required to complete a number of standardized self-report measures. Once completed these are returned to the office for scoring and interpretation (individuals completing an ADHD assessment also complete a computer task after the first interview). When the report is completed, you will meet with Dr. McCabe for feedback and to receive your report.
Psychoeducational Assessments - Learning Disability and Giftedness
These assessments are often called by many names: Psycho-ed, Educational, and Psychoeducational. An educator may request an assessment for a student to identify their learning strengths and deficits. Parents may request an assessment to identify difficulties their child may be experiencing in order to support their educational experience. It is not unusual to hear parents say, 'he knows it, he just can't write it down.' Students will say, 'I studied really hard but when I got into the test, I forgot everything.' An assessment can help identify the frustrations and work towards solutions.
We take great pride in a thorough assessment for the client that involves standardized testing and questionnaires. There are several appointments required to complete an educational assessment, including initial interviews and feedback meetings. Parents do not need to stay on site while the child is completing the testing appointments.
