Brain Power facilitates both Educational Assessments (done by a teacher specialist) and Psycho-educational Assessments (done by a registered Psychologist with the Ontario College of psychologists).
Educational Assessments are limited with respect to their findings, compared to Psycho-Educational Assessments. Educational Assessments focus more on the academic abilities of your child, and they may give an approximate grade level and percentile.
Psycho-Educational Assessments are more comprehensive and they include a battery of cognitive and academic tests. They can be done only by a registered educational psychologist.
The costs related to Psycho-Educational Assessments may be partially or entirely covered by your work benefits package. A Psycho-Educational Assessment would benefit the development of your child’s Individual Education Plan (IEP), as well as its potential to provide a formal identification or diagnosis (such as: ADD, ADHD, PDD etc.) The assessment will spell out the appropriate accommodations or modifications which would benefit your child.
Both assessments can be arranged at Brain Power.
