An individual psycho-educational assessment completed by a registered psychologist provides an opportunity to better understand an individual’s cognitive, academic, and behavioural strengths and needs.
ASSESSMENT FOR ADHD
If you are a parent or caregiver of a child suspected of having Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD,) the route to diagnosis can often be confusing. Click here to learn more about the process.
ASSESSMENT FOR AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER (ASD)
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is diagnosed clinically, based on information gathered from a detailed history and the observation of specific characteristic behaviours. At Threshold Psychology we attempt to use a family-centered approach, whenever possible, to ASD assessment because a substantial amount of time and care is required to listen to and talk with parents/caregivers and other family members.
APPROACH TO COUNSELLING
Mental health concerns can affect how children manage their emotions, behave, and learn. Counselling can help them with a variety of issues. At Threshold Psychology, we tend to use a cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) approach that focuses on how thoughts, beliefs and attitudes affect feelings and behaviour.
