Psychoeducational Assessment

Does My Child Have a Learning Disability?

Is your child…

  • not working up to their potential in school?
  • showing behavioral difficulties (i.e., impulsivity, distractibility, inattention) at home and/or school?
  • having trouble paying attention?
  • not feeling challenged enough?
  • bored in class?
  • having emotional difficulties (i.e., depression, anxiety, etc…)?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, a psychological assessment may be recommended.
