What does a psychodiagnostic assessment look like?


Every assessment starts with us getting to know you through an intake interview and relevant questionnaires. We will then recommend testing according to your presentation.


We complete the in-person part of the assessment over multiple appointments consisting of data collection via interviews, behavioural observations, questionnaires, standardized tests, document reviews, and consultations. Finally, we provide you with a full report and schedule a feedback appointment to discuss the report and recommend next steps.

What can I expect from a psychodiagnostic assessment?


The aim of a psychodiagnostic assessment is to provide the following:

  • Find a reason why these feelings or behaviours are present.

  • Provide a mental health diagnosis.

  • Provide recommendations and referrals to community partners to help gain access to resources and possible funding.

  • Provide information about next steps or treatment options.

  • Provide clarity, hope, and guidance.​
