Various diagnostic assessment services are available to answer questions you have about your child's developmental strengths and challenges. These include, but are not limited to, Autism, ADHD, Learning, Giftedness, Anxiety, Mood, and behaviourally-based challenges for individuals aged 2 to 25 years old. A full, detailed report is provided at the end of every assessment, which includes diagnostic conclusions and recommendations for services best suited to your child's needs.
The costs per assessment are generally determined after a first meeting, so the following flat rates per assessment type are estimates only and meant as a guide. Cost may change depending on the amount of time needed to arrive at meaningful conclusions.
Autism Diagnostic Assessments vary depending on age, previous assessment status, and whether a full psychoeducational assessment is needed. They typically range in cost from $2000 to $3600
Psychoeducational Assessments (e.g., Learning/Intellectual Disabilities): range from $2200 to $2800
Giftedness for Academic Placement: range from $1000 to $1200
ADHD Diagnostic Assessment (without Psychoeducational): range $1000 to $1200
Direct billing is not available at this time; however, most health care benefits provide some psychology coverage. Clients are encouraged to look into these resources. Payment options are flexible and parents should discuss in advance if they are working with coordinating benefits and/or would prefer to 'pay as they go' versus as one final sum upon the conclusion of the assessment.
***Final payment is required for the release of the results and report***
Therapy and Parent Consultation
Individual therapy for children and youth aged 6 to 21 years is available with both Dr. Katrina and Dr. Jen. Virtual therapy services are available if suitable. See 'Our Team' page to learn more about our individual specialties. Upon initial contact with our service, you will be speaking with Dr. Jen directly and she can provide you with guidance to help determine therapeutic fit and give an idea of the type of service that would be best for you and your child.
Parents are welcome to inquire about consultation services. We have ample experience working with parents looking for evidence-based guidance to manage their child's anxiety, mood, and/or behavioral challenges.
Billing is set on a flat rate of $240/hour.
