What is a Learning Assessment?
A learning assessment is the result of both clinical interviews, and the application of a series of standardized tests which are designed to identify your current abilities, and any deficits which may be affecting your learning process. A formal diagnosis of learning disabilities is vital to securing appropriate accommodations to support your learning style. That same assessment can also help guide supportive therapy to help you develop more adaptive coping skills.
Based in Calgary, Alberta, I completed a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University, New Brunswick in 2016. I completed the training for a Canadian Certified Counsellor designation in 2017.
