Many motivated college and university students are concerned that their learning abilities or their emotional well-being are hindering their potential in their post-secondary programs. A comprehensive learning assessment or psychoeducational assessment is a valuable investment for adults encountering such difficulties. These learning assessments will help determine if the difficulties you are experiencing are the result of an underlying condition such as a learning disorder, ADHD, or a mental health condition such as depression or anxiety.
Once you have completed your learning assessment and we have reviewed your learning strengths and needs, and/or any mental health issues you are experiencing, we will provide you with a comprehensive plan in order to help you move forward. This plan will consist of recommendations and strategies tailored specifically to your strengths and needs and may include suggested accommodations for you in your classroom and independent studies. In this way, an assessment can have a positive and life-changing impact by reducing barriers to your success. Removing these obstacles can have a profound effect on your ability to set and achieve goals.

Many adults have struggled with ADHD behaviors (such as limited attention span, distractibility, lack of focus, forgetfulness, disorganization, restlessness and impulsivity) since childhood, but do not consider the possibility of ADHD until they've reached a point in their adulthood where their functioning has become significantly impaired. The sustained attention required by university studies and the workplace can be overwhelming for adults with ADHD and can result in severe procrastination, workplace issues, or dropping out of post-secondary studies. It can be difficult for those with ADHD to find the right job, keep a job (due to frequent errors resulting from inattention), and to pay bills on time. Individuals with ADHD can also face marital and relationship difficulties. However, with supportive counselling and career advice, job interviews and job prospects, as well as success in post-secondary studies and relationships become easier for those with ADHD to manage.
A rigorous and standardized assessment for ADHD is necessary, as other conditions can mimic or co-exist with ADHD. These conditions can include anxiety and mood disorders, personality disorders, as well as various perceptual and neurological disorders. ADHD testing involves a comprehensive assessment in order to rule out these other conditions and to gain a solid understanding of your reasoning processes, your behaviour patterns and pertinent aspects of your executive functioning processes.
