What is the process of a psycho-educational assessment?
The assessment process includes:
- One-hour intake session with parents (may be booked in person or virtual) prior to the assessment to review intake and background information.
- Two to three assessment sessions at two hours per session with the student and psychologist.
- Information gathering from multiple sources, including a review of information (past and present report cards, Individual Program Plans (IPP) or Individualized Education Plans (IEP), and previous assessment reports), interviews with parents, teachers, and the student to gather more information across different environments, gathering of information (rating scales and questionnaires), observations (if and when necessary), and formal and standardized testing.
- A one-hour debrief session to review the assessment findings and report with parents. This session can take place in person or virtually.
- A consultation with teachers and school staff to discuss findings, at the parent’s request.
