Psychological Counselling & Psychological Assessments
Servicing Bouctouche, Miramichi, Rexton, and surrounding areas
Psychological assessments are done to help a psychologist understand his client’s thoughts. It can also evaluate 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. More precisely, they help determine 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. They are Attention Deficit Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder and Conduct Disorder.
Learning and behavioral problems are often found together. For this reason, both evaluations are often completed at the same time.
