Assessment

 

There are a variety of assessments that we conduct at All for Kids Therapy, including:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder/ASD Assessment

    • An ASD assessment involves comprehensive information collection from multiple sources including parents and teachers, in addition to interviews and observation with the child themselves. This information enables the Psychologist to determine if a child's behaviour, emotional expression and social skills are within age-appropriate limits, or whether their  areas of strength and difficulty are consistent with an ASD profile. 

    • An ASD assessment provides important information for parents and teachers, as well as informing treatment strategies for the treating professionals.

 in the clinic setting. During these assessments, the child completes different

activities such as working out patterns, providing definitions, answering general

knowledge questions and remembering number sequences. All assessment

items administered are based on the child's age and grade.

Cognitive Assessments - These assessments help Psychologists identify a

child's cognitive/intellectual abilities, in addition to their cognitive profile. A

cognitive profile is a child's individual pattern of strengths and weaknesses,

and gives an indication of a child's abilities across areas including verbal skills,

visual skills, memory and processing speed.

Learning Assessments - These assessments enable a Psychologist to identify

if any specific learning difficulties, or learning disorders (such as dyslexia), are

present in areas including: Reading, Mathematics, Written Language and Oral Language.

  • ADHD assessment

    • ADHD assessment can be conducted with children aged 5 and above. An ADHD assessment involves interviewing parents and teachers, interviewing and observing the child, and completing questionnaires designed to target ADHD symptoms specifically. The results of the assessment indicate whether a child is exhibiting symptoms consistent with an ADHD diagnosis, and also give information around what particular areas of difficulty they are experiencing. For example, hyperactivity symptoms, impulsivity symptoms and/or inattentive symptoms.

  • Emotional, Social and Behavioural Assessments

    • These assessments involve collecting information from parents and teachers, in addition to interviewing and observing a child, to determine if their behaviour, emotional expression and social skills are within age-appropriate limits, or whether they are outside of that typical of other children their age.

    • The assessment can identify difficulties such as anxiety, defiance or inattention.

    • These assessment provide important information for parents and teachers, as well as informing treatment strategies for your therapist.
