Thanks to the 100 Airdrie Men Who Give A Damn (which is a simple, quick, and meaningful way to help make a major impact in your community. 100 men pledge to give $100 four times per year to local charities and community groups. They show up, hang out, watch three presentations, and vote. The winning recipient gets $10,000 to support their incredible work.) Access Child and Youth Development Ltd., is excited to announce that we were the proud recipients that received the $10,000!! Because of this donation, we have created a sponsorship program to cover the cost for low-income families who do not qualify for assistance with ACCESS to psycho-education assessments.

A psycho-educational assessment involves examining how an individual is developing in regards to the psychological processes that underlie learning (e.g., language processing, phonological processing, fine-motor/graphomotor processing, executive functioning, visual-spatial processing, processing speed, and working memory); their acquisition of academic skills in reading, writing and math; and their social/emotional and behavioural functioning (e.g., attention and concentration, depression, anxiety). These assessments are completed with children, adolescents, and adults to help identify underlying disabilities (e.g., Learning Disabilities, ADHD, associated disorders) which may be impacting their academic/work, social, and/or overall psychological well-being.
A practising psychologist trained to assess and diagnose problems in thinking, feeling and behaviour. A psychologist is uniquely trained to use psychological tests to help with assessment and diagnosis. Psychologists help people to overcome or manage their problems using a variety of treatments or psychotherapies. In Canada, the services provided by a psychologist are covered by provincial health insurance only if the psychologist is employed by, for example, a hospital, correctional facility, community clinic, social agency or school. The services provided by a psychologist in private practice are not covered by provincial health insurance plans and the psychologist bills the patient directly. Many people have extended health benefits through their employers, which cover some amount of psychological services.
Assessments normally require about six to eight weeks to complete. The process typically includes:
– 1 hour intake session
– 2-3 testing sessions of approximately 2-3 hours each
– 1 hour debrief session to share findings
Information is gathered through interviews, review of documents (e.g., IPPs, report cards, previous assessment reports including speech-language and occupational therapy reports), formal testing, and completion of rating scales and questionnaires. At the end of the process, you will receive a completed report.
Your generosity can help a child in need to thrive and succeed today. Many children experiencing poverty struggle at school and at home due to undiagnosed learning disabilities. The cost of diagnosis at a private practice can be upwards of $3,000, which is, unfortunately, out of reach for many low-income families.
