FORMAL PSYCHOLOGICAL DIAGNOSTIC ASSESSMENTS

As part of getting to know a child, Elementa Psychology can provide a range of formal assessments for children and adolescents.

The purpose when assessing a child’s intellectual and social-emotional functioning is to guide targeted parenting, therapeutic, and academic interventions that help children to understand their own strengths and weaknesses (at a developmentally appropriate level), be understood, and supported by the important adults in their lives, and to access any extra assistance they might need to flourish. 

 

We typically provide assessments for children who:

  • Are falling behind academically

  • Struggle with attention and concentration

  • Are restless and can’t sit still

  • Are disruptive at school

  • Have memory problems

  • Appear bright but aren’t engaging in the classroom

  • May be gifted or talented

  • Are not fitting in socially
