How Can It Help My Child?

Psychoeducational assessments give us a standardized starting point for where your child may be struggling. One of our trained staff members, a psychometrist, Psychologist in Toronto will conduct this audit to further understand your child's history, behavior and responses.

Once the assessment is complete your therapist will have the tools to provide a structured strategy and treatment plan for moving forward.

What the process looks like

  1. Initial Consultation - meeting between the parents, student and psychologist
  2. Psychometric Testing - The student is given various tests to access executive function, memory, intellectual ability, reasoning and attention.
  3. Assessing Social & Behaviour Function - Clinical interviews and questionnaire are conducted to gain further understanding
  4. Results & Reports - Final results are released and developed into a comprehensive report for the parent. This includes recommendations and strategies for the child moving forward.
  5. Feedback Session - Meet with the psychologist to go over the report. Discuss recommendations and answer any outstanding questions.

Standardized Measurements

Standardized means the test has been administered across varying ages, and backgrounds to determine an average measurement that is considered the norm. From this measure, we can evaluate whether the individual is performing above or below the mean.

 

Norm-Referenced

These averages give us data on how the individual is performing compared to others his/her age.

This can be interpreted as:

  • Percentile Ranks: a reference for where the student or individual performs relative to other individuals. If one is in the 80th percentile that is they performed above 80% of peers their age.
  • Standard Score: Standardized scores are the average score one receives on the test. This creates am estimate of whether the student is performing above or below average.
