Kinark offers a range of psychological assessments for children and youth between the ages of two and 18. A psychological assessment is used to evaluate a child or youth’s development, thinking, learning, emotions, behaviour and/or day-to-day functioning. The information gathered through assessments helps to support children, youth and their families in making informed decisions and to better advocate in health care, school, and community settings.
Are you looking to increase your child’s communication, independence, play and social skills, and school readiness skills? Our centre-based services can help.
