ATTENTION GRANDVIEW FAMILIES!
NEW OPPORTUNITY AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE A FULL PSYCHO-EDUCATIONAL ASSESSMENT.
We are proud to launch a new opportunity for our Grandview Kids families.
The switch to purchased services for our Autism services introduced by the provincial government, has allowed us to look at what else we might be able to offer in this purchased services model. A full psycho-educational assessment is helpful for school age children with a developmental disorder such as cerebral palsy, autism or global developmental delay. It can be helpful to help understand your child’s cognitive or thinking skills and ability to solve problems and use language. It can help you understand what things need to be included in an IEP assessment or
help you consider classroom option that might be suggested by the school board. For older children it can be helpful to plan for high school or post-secondary options.
Some adolescents with more severe cognitive challenges may need this assessment to access adult services – such as DSO (Developmental Services Ontario) funding. All of the referrals will need to meet certain basic criteria; your child must be at least 7 years of age and must be a Grandview Kids client. The referrals will all be reviewed by our medical and psychology team to ensure that we can be helpful to you and your child, and the objective of the assessment continues to fit with our vision, mission and values as we do with all the work we do at Grandview Kids.
Sign up through our “My Community Hub” – scroll down a bit – this opportunity is currently on Page 2! The cost is $2000.00, which has to paid up front, but if a receipt is required to be broken down by visits that can be provided.
