I have a small private practice in North Vancouver, which I began in September, 2000. Prior to that, I worked as a Psychologist in Ontario, from 1994-1999.
My current practice focuses on psycho-educational assessments for children, adolescents and young adults.
Assessments of cognitive, academic, emotional and/or behavioural functioning are helpful in clarifying issues such as school problems, learning disabilities, memory problems, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), giftedness, developmental delays, and intellectual disabilities.
Psycho-educational assessments involve a series of appointments. The initial appointment is with parents, to complete a thorough developmental history. Sometimes, older teens will attend this initial appointment as well. Children then attend three to four testing sessions. Usually, teachers are asked for their observations. Finally, at the feedback session, results of the assessment are communicated to parents, and recommendations will be discussed. A thorough assessment report will be provided.
My associates, Karen Mortimer, M.Ed., and Veronica Shim, M. Ed., also are available to conduct assessments, under my supervision. Karen is an experienced teacher, Orton-Gillingham certified tutor, and school psychologist. Veronica is an experienced school psychologist.
