Over the past 20 years, we have provided assessment services to the following populations:
- students, employees, and children with learning and attention problems seeking accommodations for school, work and professional or entrance examinations;
- employees seeking support from insurance companies and employers for time off work;
-individuals using legal counsel for psychological and psycho-educational disabilities and to support ODSP application refusals;
- clients referred by community and liaison workers to support ODSP applications;
- young high school drop-outs seeking accommodations and services to return to school;
- students and employees seeking accommodations at school, work or during professional examinations for limitations due to language and culture;
- refugees whose lives are threatened in their countries who are seeking legal counsel to support an application for Canadian citizenship;
- individuals with low cognitive and adaptive abilities seeking supported housing.
We are now more up to date than ever with English, French and bilingual testing of intelligence, achievement, specific disorders (i.e. work-related burn-out, depression, anxiety, adaptation, ADHD, Asperger Syndrome).
In order to accommodate an increasingly culturally and physically diverse population, we have also purchased an intelligence test (the Comprehensive Test of Non Verbal Intelligence) for individuals coming from non-North American cultures, those for whom English or French testing is not applicable, and those with limited language abilities due to brain or developmental disorders, or deafness.
We have also purchased the Harrington-O’Shea Career Decision Making System (CDMS) to assist students, employees and high school returnees to identify their career interests and tendencies. The summary profile code emerging from the CDMS provides direct access to the Canadian Classification of Occupational Titles, through which all Canadian occupations are available through the Internet.
Our hourly fees continue to be highly competitive in the Ottawa region. Our services are partly or completely covered by insurance companies.
All assessments are required by the College of Psychologists of Ontario to include an intake session to collect all pertinent information, as well as a feedback session to discuss test results, in addition to the testing process. Clients can also request an assessment report. The duration of assessments can range from 5 hours (for psychological testing) to 10 hours (for full psycho-educational and career interest testing), including test corrections and the writing of a report.
This is just a summary of our assessment services. Should you have any questions or would like additional details regarding our services, do not hesitate to email us or call us at 613-454-5332.
