Assessments

Comprehensive Psychological Assessment

Goal: A comprehensive assessment that looks at intellectual and school functioning along with mental health and developmental concerns. 

Comprehensive psychological assessments provide information about how a child/adolescent learns, their social-emotional profile, and answers any specific questions that the youth or caregiver may have regarding areas of growth and strengths.

Psychologists use standardized assessment tools to explore the youth’s academic and cognitive abilities, memory, social skills, fine motor skills, and mental health. They also complete interviews and/or questionnaires with parents, the youth, and potentially other relevant people involved with the child/adolescent, as well as review relevant documentation (e.g., report cards, previous assessments, etc.). The standardized tests are administered by a psychologist or psychometrist. The results of the assessment could lead to a diagnosis or diagnoses, but not always. 

What Does an Assessment involve?

1

Background/History

Interview and questionnaires with parents/youth and review of relevant data (e.g., report cards, prior assessments, relevant medical documentation).

2

Assessment Sessions

Administration of standardized tests, observations, and clinical interviewing with the youth.

3

Comprehensive Feedback

The feedback session is directly between the youth and/or parents, and the psychologist. The psychologist will explain the results of the assessment, highlighting the areas of strength and need, and providing recommendations and next steps.

4

Report

After the feedback has occurred, you will be provided with a detailed report. The report will include the results of the standardized testing, as well as a clinical formulation (write up summarizing the testing and bringing the information all together to explain the youth’s profile), and recommendations. The recommendations that WonderTree psychologists make will be tailored to the youth and based on the assessment results. This is your report, you can share it with whomever you feel is important to have the information, such as the school and family doctor.

Fee: $4750
