What is psychological assessment?
A psycho-diagnostic assessment evaluates a person’s mental process and behaviours to understand how it impacts their development and daily functioning. Assessments use highly reliable, standardized tests that have been validated in clinical trials. This increases diagnostic accuracy, and greatly aids in the development of treatment plans with the highest likelihood of success.
During the assessment, several skills including language, memory, learning, problem solving, planning, organization, fine motor and visual spatial are tested along with an examination of general intellect, behaviour and emotions.
