Assessments‎ for Children, Adolescents and Adults

Assessments are an essential component to any clinical service. Typically, assessments involve many areas of functioning, inclusive of (but not limited to) family history, academic/cognitive functioing, employment, interpersonal skills, emotional health/functioning, behavioural/delinquency issues, developmental issues, and strengths/risks. Comprehensive assessments allow therapists to understand the unique strengths, risks, and treatment needs of children, youth, and adults, and are often completed before commencing counselling/treatment with individuals.
