How long does the assessment take?

The number of sessions required to complete testing will depend greatly on the area(s) of concern and the age and stamina of the child. The psychologist and child may need to meet on several occasions. Usually, these sessions are scheduled for 2-3 hours. Be aware that we will ask you to keep your child out of school to perform the assessment.

Do I have to prepare my child for the assessment?

No, you do not have to prepare your child for the assessment. The psychologist will explain the testing procedure to the child in the beginning. For younger children, please explain that there will be no medical exam involved. Your child should be in good physical health on the testing day. Testing after a lack of sleep or after school hours should be avoided.

What should I bring to the appointment?

If your child wears glasses, a hearing aid or any other device, please make sure to bring them. Please also bring a drink and a light snack.
