    The Benefits and Limitations of Psychological Assessments

    Psychoeducational Assessments 

    Psychological and learning assessments can help identify your child’s strengths and challenges with cognitive, learning behavioral, emotional functioning. The assessment process is a tool that can help us gain diagnostic clarity and individual insights that let us develop personalized recommendations to help your child succeed.

    Speech and Language Assessment

    Our comprehensive evaluations are used to identify and assess how your child or teens uses their speech, communication, and language skills to understand and interact with the world around them. Our Speech and Language pathologists work with you and your child to assess their language and communication strengths and needs to help ensure they receive targeted intervention and support.

    Counselling for Anxiety and Depression 

    We offer therapy services for anxiety and depression that we tailor to your child’s needs and age. We do so by creating a warm, safe, and nonjudgmental space where your child or teenager can freely share their thoughts, feelings, concerns, and behaviours. We work at your child’s pace so they feel supported throughout the therapy process. Additionally, with your child’s permission, we invite you – the parents or guardians, because your support is also critical to their success and growth.

    Speech and Language Therapy 

    Speech and language therapy can help improve speech sounds, fluency, pronunciation, voice quality, articulation, and language skills, so that your child can communicate more effectively in school, with friends, and at home.
