ADHD Test: Assess Your ADD ADHD Symptoms w/ Scientific Results
Alberta Counselling Centre provides comprehensive psychoeducational assessments and counselling for children, adolescents, and adults. Is your child underachieving academically? Have you noticed signs of a Learning Disability? Early identification and intervention is an important key in helping a child who is struggling to reach his or her full potential. A thorough psychoeducational assessment can help by making sense of your child's struggles; it provides information about the reasons behind the challenges. Furthermore, it creates a picture of your child's unique learning profile , by assessing current cognitive functioning and gaining insight into strengths and weaknesses—cognitively, academically, and emotionally. A psychoeducational assessment offers a more accurate and complete picture of your child that can change the way your child is perceived, and ensure that appropriate educational programming and accommodations necessary for success are recommended.
