Learning Disability Assessments
Diagnostic assessments must be conducted and signed by licensed psychologists who are members of a professional body in accordance with provincial/territorial laws.
Documentation of a psycho-educational assessment supporting the diagnosis of a learning disability/disorder, conducted and signed by a qualified assessor, is valid and required documentation.
Prior to embarking on a potentially costly diagnostic psycho-educational assessment, students are encouraged to undergo a screening process to determine whether they are at risk for learning disabilities.
Students should contact the Disability Service at their educational institution to discuss screening for potential learning disabilities. Students may also obtain information on screening through:
