Assessment & Diagnosis

Psychological Assessment and Diagnosis: Shining Through Centre provides comprehensive psychological assessments that can help to identify your child’s strengths, needs and any potential diagnosis that can lead to intervention and school planning (including Autism diagnosis). If your child is exhibiting speech delays, learning problems or developmental delays, an assessment can help to identify these and allow for early intervention which is critical for best outcomes.If you suspect that your child is not developing as they should, Shining Through can conduct various assessments to help determine the cause. An assessment will provide answers to a variety of questions about your child’s development. As part of the assessment your child will participate in different standardized tasks and play activities so that the clinician can observe a variety of skills and behaviours. Assessments may take place either in clinic or in the community. At the end of each assessment you will have a chance to review all of the information gathered and receive a report with next steps and clinical recommendations. The assessment will evaluate a full spectrum of potential diagnosis and is not limited to ASD. Some or all of the assessment costs may be covered under extended health benefits.
