A psychological assessment provides:
Information regarding the student’s intellectual functioning, memory, attention, academic skills, executive functioning, emotional functioning and personality. If a student is struggling with learning or behavioural difficulties at school or does not appear to be meeting their true potential, an assessment will assist in gaining a better understanding of the underlying problems and make recommendations to address the problems.
A diagnosis may be provided if diagnostic criteria are met. Consultation regarding working with the educational system, developing a Growth Plan or an Individual Education Plan (IEP) and attending a Identification Placement Review Committee (IPRC) meeting is also available.
