The Counselling Group offers comprehensive psychological assessments that include an initial session to clarify the purpose and process, as well as a feedback session to review the results and recommendations. Our psycho-educational assessments are conducted by experienced psychometrists under the supervision of a registered psychologist.
How long is the process of psychoeducational testing?
Usually, the process can take up to one to two months. The person taking the tests will be required to meet the psychometrist one or two times. After the appointments are over, the report could take up to three weeks to be finalized.
Can I undergo a psychoeducational evaluation if I am above 18 years of age?
Yes, in most cases testing can be done for up to 90 years of age; however, during the initial intake phone call, the psychometrist will be able to decide if an assessment can be done in specific cases through asking several questions.
Is the initial intake consultation for a psychoeducational report face-to-face or over the phone?
The initial intake consultation will be over the phone. It should last around 15 minutes. The psychometrist usually asks a few questions in order to determine what kinds of tests should be used, if there’s a need for a psychoeducational assessment, and to answer questions that the caller might have.
Do I need a referral to undergo a psychoeducational assessment?
There is no need for a referral from a medical doctor or a mental health professional to undergo a psychoeducational assessment.
Currently, assessments are available in English and Arabic only, catering to ages 6-90, with a focus on cognitive abilities. To schedule an initial no-cost consultation, please use our booking portal.
