Assessments are useful in identifying a child’s academic strengths and weakness, and potential learning disabilities. A learning needs assessment (psychoeducational assessment) is conducted by a psychologist, and might include a cognitive assessment (e.g. WPPSI-III, WISC-V), educational assessment (e.g. WIAT-III), behavioural assessment (e.g. Vineland, CBCL, Conners) and interviews with the child, parents, and teachers.
At the Social Learning we have two primary goals; sharing knowledge and helping individuals to reach their full potential. By gathering all of this information together, the psychologist gains a complete picture of a child’s strengths and challenges. We then work collaboratively with the child, the parents, and their school to ensure we understand the young persons challenges and can use their strengths to help them to reach their full potential.
