ASSESSMENT

The SBSLG assessment team specializes in assessing children, adolescents and young adults with a variety of developmental and learning challenges.  Our assessments are completed by a registered School and Child Clinical Psychologist, are offered at our main location in Brampton and can be arranged in Satellite locations.

All assessments are planned in collaboration with the parent or young adult and are designed to answer the requested assessment question.  In all cases an estimate will be discussed prior to the first appointment.  Consent to assessment, issues of confidentiality and our privacy policy will all be discussed at the beginning of the assessment process.

Any assessment may result in a diagnosis. A diagnosis is the process of determining whether or not the challenges affecting the individual meet the criteria for a Psychological Disorder as defined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual: Fifth Edition.  Diagnosis is meaningful to the extent that it results in practical and effective interventions.

It is important to remember that when making a diagnosis it may be important to rule out other conditions (e.g., Intellectual Disability versus Autism Spectrum Disorder) and/or to identify co-morbid conditions (e.g., co-occurrence of Intellectual Disability and Autism Spectrum Disorder). 

All assessments include a detailed report describing the child’s/adolescents/young adults’ strengths and needs, diagnosis (if applicable) and recommendations.
