Services

  • Psychoeducational Assessment

If your child is struggling in school and you don’t know why, a psycho-educational assessment may provide the information you need to move forward. A psycho-educational assessment can help determine what underlying factors are creating the difficulties and provide strategies to support your child’s development.
