Notice about COVID-19:

We’re Here For You

Psychology is an essential service. The response to COVID-19 has forced us all to make big changes in an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19, but our offices have not closed and we’ve stayed open to referrals for psychological assessment and treatment.

For the safety of clients, our staff, and the whole community, we’re providing a combination of telehealth and in-person services.

Telehealth (video and voice-only): We’re conducting most appointments through telehealth, either through a secure video call or by voice only. For video appointments, we use two user-friendly applications—zoom and Voice only meetings can be by phone or by as voice only.

In-Person: When we do conduct psychological services in-person, we meet or exceed public health recommendations for safe delivery of services like ours. For example, we’ve greatly limited the number of people coming to our offices, disinfecting surfaces between meetings as well as part-way through longer meetings, and maintaining appropriate physical distancing.

We expect to be able to offer all parts of psychological and psychoeducational assessment via telehealth soon.

If you have questions about any of our safety practices, please get in touch.

Evaluation and Reporting

We provide information accessibly and in a timely manner from the beginning to the end of an evaluation. We want people to know up front what will and will not be involved in the evaluation and, later, what we have found and what it means in practical terms. We have found that, when clients and their families really understand the purposes and processes of evaluation, and when we provide evaluation findings and recommendations promptly and usefully, everyoneʼs commitment to optimizing learning increases.

Psychoeducational and Pediatric Neuropsychological Evaluation

Psychoeducational Evaluation involves collection and integration of information from a variety of sources. We work to understand the specifics of the current problem, clarify when it began and how it developed. Collecting a thorough history is an important part of any evaluation. Information about pre-natal and birth history, early development, as well as a personʼs medical and educational history, and family history can be useful to understanding the current situation. We want to know about the person's current health status and life stresses as well.

As part of a psycho-educational evaluation, we conduct interviews with:

Also, we frequently speak with others who know the person well:

Where appropriate, we spend time observing a school-aged person in the classroom.

Where formal testing is required, selection of tests depends on the nature of problems, and also upon what, if any, testing has previously been conducted (for example, through the school or in another psychologistʼs office). Psychological tests fall into broad categories, including:


After collecting and integrating all of the information, we provide verbal feedback of our findings to the person weʼve been working with, his or her family, or both. A feedback meeting is an interactive process of discussion meanings of what weʼve found and havenʼt found, and a time for developing plans for intervention collaboratively.


Following the feedback meeting, we turn to completing and filing our final report on the evaluation. The written report is usually a central product of evaluation, and the thing toward which weʼve been working during our time together. The report summarizes the referral questions of the evaluation, sources of information, background, observations, and findings, as well as recommendations to direct action and intervention going forward. We aim to produce useful, understandable, comprehensive reports.

We provide the original report to the client (or to their guardian) and, if authorized by the client or their guardian, copies may be distributed to the clientʼs school, for action by classroom teachers, resource teachers, and others, or to college or university disabilities staff, to medical doctors, and other professionals.

We aim for fourteen day written reporting. In other words, we aim to have the written report finalized and in the hands of those who need it, within fourteen days of the verbal feedback meeting. (As mentioned, fees must be paid in full before we can release the report.)

Pediatric Neuropsychological Evaluation:

Pediatric neuropsychological assessment is similar in some ways to psychoeducational evaluation but neuropsychological evaluation may be an important part of meeting the needs of children and teens with neurological conditions or medical conditions impacting cognitive and other functions. Conditions such as genetic disorder, seizure disorders, tumour, stroke, and traumatic brain injury , etc.

Like psychoeducational assessment, pediatric neuropsychological assessment focuses on learning and thinking, but may use additional, specialized tools to assess specific points of interplay between brain function and behaviour, social skills, and personality functioning.
