Child Psychoeducational Resources

How It Works

Learn more about Psychoeducational Assessements.

A psychoeducational assessment is a comprehensive assessment that uses standardized testing to determine factors impacting your education. It reveals strengths and weaknesses and helps you better understand yourself.

The assessment covers intelligence, academic abilities, cognitive skills, ADHD, memory, and mental health.

Psychoeducational assessments are beneficial for children struggling with their learning and attention.

The assessment will help you and your child better understand their learning and mental health. If you are seeking accommodations, this is the assessment for you.

The assessment includes 4 sessions:

  1. Testing day 1 at our office
  2. Testing day 2 at our office
  3. Virtual clinical interview two weeks later
  4. Virtual feedback session three weeks after the clinical interview

You will receive the comprehensive report via email after the feedback session.

The testing is approximately 5-6 hours over two days, including breaks throughout as needed. If your child finishes everything the first day, they may not need to return the second day.

Ensure your child has eaten beforehand and that they bring a lunch and drinks so they are prepared to test for several hours.

Please ask your child not to use any devices during the testing as this may serve as a distraction.

Behavioural and emotional factors that influence learning are also assessed during your assessment. 

They are similar in their process, however, different tests are used.

Consent and intake forms should be completed before the testing day. Questionnaires and measures will be sent to you to complete before the clinical interview. After the clinical interview, additional questionnaires may be sent to you.

All forms and questionnaires must be completed before the feedback session. 

If there is a delay in gathering information due to incomplete questionnaires, our psychologist will deliver the feedback as planned and send the report once all the information has been incorporated.

The assessment is conducted by a team, including psychometrists (i.e., the examiner), psychological associates, and a psychologist. With your consent, the assessment will be video recorded to assist the team with scoring, report writing, and allow the psychologist to observe your child directly.

One of our clinicians conducts the clinical interview. Our psychologist formulates your child’s diagnosis if applicable and conducts the feedback session. The team works together to synthesize the report.

If your child cannot do the testing in person, we can arrange to conduct a virtual assessment on a case-by-case basis.

Yes, we have weekend availability to book your assessment. However, there is an additional charge of $100 for weekend assessments.

Before the testing day, you will have consent and intake forms and questionnaires to complete.

The testing environment is meant to mimic a formal evaluation experience (e.g., have minimal distractions such as toys in the room). 

On the first testing day, you will meet with the psychometrist and review the consent and any questions. You can leave for the duration of the testing and the psychometrist will contact you half an hour before your child is finished. 

The psychometrist will administer tests that measure memory, executive functioning, intelligence, academic abilities, and focus.

The psychometrist will finish the testing on the second testing day. If your child finishes everything the first day, they may not have to return for the second day.

During the clinical interview, you will meet with one of our clinicians virtually for 30 minutes. They will ask you about your child’s current symptoms and their development.

Parent(s) should attend the clinical interview to provide information about their child. 


During the feedback session, you will meet with our psychologist virtually for 30 minutes to review the results, recommendations, and diagnoses.

Parent(s) should attend the feedback session to receive the results of their child’s assessment. If you would like your child to attend the feedback session, they are welcome to join the meeting.

You will receive a comprehensive report of the results of your child’s assessment shortly after your feedback session.

The report will include your child’s history which we gathered from the clinical interview, the clinical information, and numerical data of your performance.

It will also outline applicable diagnoses and specific recommendations. These recommendations may be related to learning, attention, and psychotherapy. If applicable, the psychologist will review the type of psychotherapy that would be most beneficial.

During the feedback session, recommendations and services available will be explained for support with ADHD, learning difficulties, and mental health problems, if applicable.

We are here to support you throughout this process.
