At Pinnacle Psych, we offer psycho-educational assessments in Calgary for patients aged 5 and up. Our psycho-educational assessments are focused on treatment planning and a path forward- both key factors in optimal learning.
Our comprehensive psycho-educational assessments in Calgary include academic, cognitive, and emotional/social/behavioral testing, interpretation, and resulting profiles. This comprehensive approach allows us to understand both the current and overall picture of what might be happening in our clients’ lives, informing useful and effective recommendations. Our team is highly skilled at helping our clients and their families understand what their results mean.
The turnaround times for our assessment are typically quick, and we understand how difficult it can be to reach out, and the relief one feels when they finally get some answers. Often, there are time-sensitive events as well, such as upcoming exams, transitions from levels of schooling, and application deadlines. Be sure to discuss with us timing and scheduling so that we can meet your needs.
Assessments can also be conducted for any of the following domains (cognitive, academic, and social/emotional/ behavioural), individually or collectively.
Nonverbal assessment: At Pinnacle Psych, we are one of very few clinics who offer cognitive assessment for nonverbal clients. This is an extremely difficult psychological service to access, and we are pleased to formally assess and recommend how to support those who require this nuanced service.
Substance use assessment and treatment: Kathleen trained and provided services as a Substance Abuse Expert, when she was engaged in contract work for a large, national EFAP program. In this role, she engaged in the formal assessment of substance use, as well as delivering and monitoring recommended treatment plans. For clients wondering, and/or who have been asked, the degree to which substance use is impacting their living and functioning – let’s figure it out together.
