Many people can benefit from therapy. We offer a positive and practical approach to psychological therapy for children, adolescents, and adults on an individual basis, as well as couples counseling, parent counseling, family therapy, and support groups.
The goal of therapy is to improve social and emotional functioning in everyday life. This goal addresses all aspects of a person’s interactions with the world.
A psycho-educational assessment can be beneficial for everyone, but it can be especially useful if a child is:
- Unexpectedly struggling in school
- Having difficulty learning a particular skill
- Suspected of having a learning disability
- Struggling emotionally or socially
- Looking to qualify for testing accommodations (SAT, IB, A-Levels etc)
- Applying to a school that requires a psycho-educational assessment
Parents meet with one of our specialists to discuss the assessment, sharing background information and concerns. We will ask relevant questions to provide us with insights into the child’s functioning in a variety of settings.
Conducted over a minimum of 6 hours spread over 2 days. Our interactive tests measure general intelligence factors, specific cognitive abilities, academic levels, attentional control, and social and emotional wellbeing.
Members of the assessment team discuss their impressions and the testing results, drawing on everyone’s areas of expertise, and utilizing our wider team of clinicians if necessary, to provide a comprehensive assessment.
THE REPORT & DEBRIEF
Our reports provide a comprehensive picture of the child with useful recommendations for home and school. We meet with the child, parents (and teachers if required) to explain the results. Parents will be provided with strategies to address problem areas, as well as how to continue to support areas of strength.
