If your child has been referred for psychological testing, you probably have some questions about what to expect. You may have heard about psycho-educational or neuropsychological testing and are wondering if your child should be tested. A potential need for psychological testing may sound concerning - someone has suggested it because of a difficulty - however, it's designed to help. Only when we understand what the issue is can we figure out how to best address it. Learning issues in school can have a number of different causes. A difficulty focusing, for example, could be caused by a reading disorder, ADHD, anxiety, depression or a combination of different factors. Testing can clarify the underlying issues and help identify the most effective interventions and supports.
