As part of psychological treatments, it is standard practice to objectively check up on areas such as memory, attention, reasoning, and verbal ability- all cognitive abilities you need to function optimally in everyday life. It’s not a test- it’s a quick check-up on how you’re doing today, like a blood pressure cuff for your brain.
At CITC, our experienced, registered Clinical Psychologists provide psychoeducational and socio-emotional assessments for the purpose of identifying and providing recommendations for a number of issues.
Assessment can be helpful for educational planning, placement, identifying appropriate services and supports, and learning how to build on the child’s strength.
At CITC we offer assessments for young adults and adults as well. The depth of the Psychological Assessments we conduct for adults will depend on the reason for the assessment. We offer career counselling to help you discover the career path that is right for you, as well as strength based and adult ADHD assessments.

However, years of the same job and tasks can lead to stagnation.
