Social / Emotional / Behavioural Assessments
Individuals are complex and there are often underlying reasons for emotional and behavioural challenges or difficulties in interpersonal relationships. For a variety of reasons, people may require a specific, formalized assessment of these types of challenges to determine whether they meet criteria for a particular diagnosis.
Dr. Kincade offers individualized assessments for children, teenagers and adults who may be struggling in some of the following areas:
- Anxiety Disorders
- Mood Disorders
- Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)
- Developmental Delays
These types of assessments typically involve the following components:
Clinical interviews (usually with the client and other collateral sources, such as family members, teachers or other important caregivers)
- Questionnaire completion
- Behavioural Observations
- Review of relevant background academic and/or medical records
Depending on the person’s particular needs, they may or may not require a formalized, written assessment report. If this is required, a formal report will be provided. In all cases, the client will be invited to return for a feedback session in which the clinical impressions and any suggestions or recommendations will be discussed.
