Psychological and mental health assessments are provided at all office locations to clarify mental health conditions, disability issues, and mental health diagnoses, such as depression, anxiety disorders, or chronic pain.
At Brookside Psychologists, our licensed Psychologists provide diagnostic testing for individuals from four years of age through adulthood. An assessment can address the following issues: behavioral issues, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD), emotional issues (depression, anxiety, etc.), learning disabilities, Giftedness, or Autism Spectrum Disorders (including Asperger’s).
Brookside Psychologists offers neuropsychological assessment to determine the presence and severity of any cognitive, emotional, and/or behavioural difficulties associated with possible brain damage (from things like a traumatic brain injury or stroke), brain disease (like a brain tumor or Alzheimer’s dementia, for example), severe mental illness (like chronic severe depression or psychosis), or developmental condition (such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADD/ADHD, or Learning Disabilities).
A Psychovocational Assessment is intended to “match” a person’s abilities (aptitudes, skills) with the specific reasoning and learning requirements of a job or training goal.
