About What If Psychology
Access to psycho-educational assessments that children can wait years for in the schools (if they’re ever seen at all), can still take up to a year using private services.
At What If Psychology, reports are shared with parents within 10 days of the last testing session (unless delays are requested by the parents for insurance reasons). Report results are communicated to parents in an easy-to-understand way and recommendations are provided to help them obtain the support their children need.
Importantly, sharing the report with their child’s school will assist staff to create individual programs required for their child or adolescent.
The Cost of Assessment
A complete psycho-educational assessment, including meetings with parent(s), testing with the child or adolescent, and a written report usually costs about $3000, billed at an hourly rate of $225. Assessments for a specific need, like intellectual assessment for giftedness, typically cost around $1800. Extended health benefits often cover psychological assessments, but they are not covered by OHIP.

Assessments identify strengths and areas of weakness to help parents understand how their child learns.
Recommendations stem from assessment data to identify specific strategies, accommodations, and resources to support a child.
