Couselling & Psychoeducational Clinic - Child

Keywords: psychological assessment

Psychological assessment typically presents a relatively low risk to participants. It is possible that clients may feel anxious about being “tested”; however, clinicians are trained to detect and respond sensitively to indications of anxiety. It is also important that test results and written reports be used with discretion in order to ensure that clients are not adversely affected by inappropriate use of such information (see description of confidentiality of records, below).

The benefits of taking part in the psychological assessment include the provision of a detailed description of strengths and weaknesses in the areas covered by the assessment (e.g., intellectual, academic, and social-emotional functioning), and specific recommendations for addressing areas of difficulty. For example, this information may be used to access special education services within schools, and to provide programming suggestions for teacher or tutors.
