Assessments are a series of sessions in which one of our therapists will assess the specific issues faced by the individual. All assessments will start with an initial consultation before it can be determined whether specific assessment tools are required. They will typically consist of diagnostic interviews, behavioral observations and the use of standardized psychometric instruments. A feedback session will then be arranged to review the results.

The Educational Diagnostic Art(s) Therapy Assessment (Ed. DATA©). This assessment provides a comprehensive cognitive and emotional evaluation. ATIC’s neuroscience approach helps in the identification of the child’s strengths and weaknesses in relation to their academic potential.
This screening assessment aims to enhance the child’s learning potential, and aids parents/caregivers and teachers in developing the child’s strengths and potential to learn. The aim is to provide early intervention as a form of prevention, to limit the potential of a child falling behind academically. We will pinpoint their strengths, which will then be harnessed in order to help them reach their fullest academic potential. These child assessments combine both academic achievement testing and an emotional evaluation, assessing your child’s ability to cope with the pressures of school.
ATIC’s therapists will provide a comprehensive report and will give recommendations on how to better help your child cope with the school demands.
