Psychological Assessments

Saterra Psychological & Counselling Services is pleased to offer a variety of assessments, including psychodiagnostic assessments and ADHD assessments for adults. An assessment can provide you with clarity regarding the symptoms you have been experiencing. It can also help provide some recommendations in terms of how best to manage your symptoms.

Please note that, under Canadian law, only medical doctors and psychologists can diagnose mental health disorders.

ADHD Assessment

We offer Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) assessments for adults 18 years and over. ADHD, sometimes also called ADD, can impact one’s functioning in many areas of life, including home, school, work and social situations.

An ADHD assessment can:

  • Clarify whether your symptoms meet criteria for an adult ADHD diagnosis
  • Identify areas of strength and difficulty
  • Provide recommendations for strategies to address any identified barriers to functioning.

Note that, under Canadian law, only medical doctors and psychologists can diagnose mental health disorders. If you would like to know whether you meet criteria for an ADHD diagnosis, a Saterra psychologist will conduct a thorough ADHD assessment for you. ADHD testing is not covered by OHIP; please reach out to learn more about fees. Contact us to learn more.

Psychodiagnostic Assessment

A psychodiagnostic assessment provides diagnostic clarification, such as whether symptoms meet diagnostic criteria for a disorder (e.g., depression, PTSD, or anxiety), as well as a clear description of symptoms and their impact on functioning. A psychodiagnostic assessment can identify factors that may have contributed to the onset and continuation of symptoms, as well as recommend treatment options, improvement strategies and/or accommodations.

We provide psychodiagnostic assessments for adults aged 18 years and older.
