Assessment

The Westcoast Child Development Group provides a number of assessment services that use standardized testing materials, multiple sources, and sound clinical judgement.

West Coast professionals are fully trained in various comprehensive assessment techniques and in the interpretation of the results. Each assessment is individually tailored to the specific referral question and results are shared with educators or mental health professionals at the request of the family. Each report is accompanied by a number of specific and detailed recommendations tailored to meet the needs of the learner.

Psychoeducational Assessments

This form of assessment is seen as an integral part of a comprehensive learning plan. A comprehensive Psychoeducational assessment allows for a detailed analysis of a learner’s strengths and areas of need. Standardized measurement tools are used to chart the performance of each learner and compare him or her to their same-age peers. The individual profile can then help guide any educational accommodations/modifications.

Autism Spectrum Assessment

Following the provincial guidelines, our Psychologists use the recommended standardized assessment and clinical observation and tools. Our clinicians strictly adhere to the BC Autism Assessment Network (BCAAN) guidelines for autism.
