Child/Adolescent Psychology Assessment

(ASD or ADHD focus)

Assessing your child can feel like an intimidating process. At Northside Psychology, our assessment team will assist you in making this understandable, accessible and helpful every step of the way.

A psychological assessment for a minor is appropriate for many different reasons. If you’ve been given a referral, or believe an ASD or ADHD assessment may be appropriate, this might be the appropriate assessment for you. Alternatively, this is the assessment to choose where you’ve noticed and are concerned by any of the following behaviours:

  • Social / Communication issues
  • Repetitive patterns of behaviour
  • Ordering behaviours
  • Lack of empathy
  • Unusual interests or extreme knowledge in a specific area
  • Sensory sensitivity
  • Frequent “meltdowns”
  • Prefers own company
  • Developmental delays (speech, toileting, gross/fine motor), poor emotional regulation
  • Difficulty holding attention
  • Fidgety / can’t keep still
  • Forgetful
  • Difficulty concentrating/maintaining focus
  • Overwhelmed by school projects/assignments
  • Disorganized
  • Reading difficulties
  • Poor academic attainment, behavioral problems at school, difficulty following instructions

Please note: These behaviours are only indicators that this assessment may be helpful. All of these are normal and seen to different extents in children of all ages.
