Nicole Hébert LeBlanc, Psychologist
Psychological Counselling & Psychological Assessments
Servicing Rexton, Miramichi, Bouctouche, and surrounding areas
Psychological assessments are done to help a psychologist better understand his client’s thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Two types of evaluations are offered at Soul Psychology: psycho-educational and behavioral.
A psycho-educational assessment is a series of tests used to help understand how a person learns. Different tests are used to find an individual’s abilities and more precisely their strengths and weaknesses. Some of the abilities measured are: memory, attention, verbal comprehension, visual-motor abilities and processing speed. With the results, the psychologist can tell if the individual has a learning disorder. The most common learning disorders are: reading disorder (dyslexia), writing disorder (dysgraphia) and mathematical disorder (dyscalculia).
Behavioral assessments are used to help diagnose behavioral problems such as Attention Deficit Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder and Conduct Disorder. They are often completed with a psycho-educational assessment since learning and behavioral problems are often found together.
