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.

The cost of a psychoeducational assessment is approximately $3,350. Fees are tax exempt. You may have coverage for part or all of the cost. Due to more extensive testing required for some conditions (such as Autism Spectrum Disorder), the fee may be higher for some assessments.
