When an individual has learning problems, it can be very helpful to have a psychoeducational assessment performed by a psychologist.
Ways to find a psychologist include:
- Talk with the child's school regarding the possibility of seeing a psychologist that works with the schoolboard. This is paid for by the schoolboard, however there are often long waitlists.
- Agencies (such as psychology training programs with a university) that can offer free, or low-cost testing.
- Seeing a psychologist working in private practice, which is usually the quickest option. In many cases, a family member's employee health plan may pay some of this expense.
If you are having problems finding psychologists in this category, consider just looking directly under psychologists.
