Understanding strengths and weaknesses contributes to effective treatment, and may demonstrate eligibility for special community services.
You can arrange a private psychological assessment through Youthdale on a fee-for-service basis.* A certified child psychologist will provide a comprehensive evaluation of the child's personality, achievement, and intellectual functioning.
After testing is completed, the psychologist will meet with the child's caregiver to discuss the assessment results and to address any questions or concerns. The psychologist also provides a written assessment and recommendations. This confidential report is not released by Youthdale without the written consent of the legal guardian and/or the child.
For more information, please call our Intake Coordinator at (416) 363-3751, ext. 2000.
*Fees for this service vary depending on the assessment. Many families have insurance which covers psychological services, and Youthdale staff can help access this funding.
