Assessments with Children and Adolescents

Assessments with Children and Adolescents

Psychometric testing is often needed when a learner presents with a specific learning or developmental difficulty, inattentiveness or emotional/behavioural difficulties. When a parent or teacher suspects any of the above, I can help them to determine the exact problem. The process starts with a full and detailed interview with parents, followed by psychometric testing with the child/adolescent. The results are scored and interpreted and a thorough report is compiled summarizing the results. I will provide feedback regarding the results to parents and often (with the parents’ consent) also communicate with the class teacher or support team at the school in order to best support the child/adolescent. Appropriate referrals to other professionals are also made if necessary.
