Assessments

We assess for ADHD, autism, learning disorders, intellectual delays, giftedness, anxiety and mood disorders in English primarily. Our assessments identify a client’s strengths and needs in order to support their wellbeing at school and at home. All assessments are individualized based on the presenting issues and what is needed to answer the referral question. As such, assessments are charged hourly, with estimates based on the client age. However, the fees for older clients are usually higher due to the availability of increased measures, longer testing sessions, as well as the added complexity of a clinical profile as people age and acquire more life and school experiences to consider. After reviewing the intake documents that you will be asked to submit prior to booking your assessment, the assessment procedures will be finalized in the intake meeting. Fees include intake and feedback meetings with Dr. Ryan, testing sessions with psychometrists or Dr. Ryan, scoring, report writing, and file reviews.

This assessment includes cognitive testing, developmental measures, play and observation, as well as psychodiagnostic interviews and questionnaires. This assessment can identify ADHD, autism, anxiety, and developmental delays. A full report of findings and recommendations for treatment and accommodations is provided. Part of the assessment includes reviewing report cards, IEPs, or previous assessments (e.g. OT, speech, etc), so please prepare these documents if you intend to request services.

COVID-19:

Mask use is optional for clients and psychometrists. We will continue with active covid-19 prescreening and with sanitization measures. We do not want to test your child if they are feeling unwell, covid or otherwise. We would prefer they are in good health on the days of their testing to ensure the results are accurate. Please contact us to reschedule if needed.
