OUR 3-PART SOLUTION TO SIGNATURE/PSYCHOEDUCATIONAL ASSESSMENTS DURING COVID-19

At Possibilities we are proud to offer comprehensive assessments and scientifically-proven treatments to support attention, learning and mental health. COVID-19 has turned all of our lives upside down, but some things haven’t changed.  Our Signature Assessments will always look at more than just attention, or learning, or mental health alone. That won’t change. In fact, our Signature Assessments are a combination of an ADD/ADHD Assessment, a Mental Health Assessment, and a Learning Disability/Psychoeducational Assessment all rolled into one. All our assessments are done by a Multidisciplinary Team that includes psychiatrists, psychometrists and psychologists with expertise in a range of diagnoses and treatments.  If you’re familiar with the concept of a Psych-Ed, or a Psychoeducational Assessment, then you can think of our Signature Assessments as Psych-Ed MD assessments, or Psych-Ed Plus assessments. Why? Because a psychiatrist is always part of the Assessment Team—and that means attention and mental health will also be examined, in depth, in addition to the learning needs assessed by a psychologist. Attention, mental health and learning needs often go together. It’s essential to examine all of them so nothing gets missed. COVID-19 means some changes to testing, but we can still get started! COVID-19 has changed how we offer our Signature...

CALM, CARING, CONNECTED. How We Are Helping You and Your Family During COVID-I9

The world is in the midst of an evolving COVID-19 situation. These are unsettling times.  On March 17, 2020, we made the decision to delay all in-person testing and therapy sessions at the Possibilities Clinic until the public health situation subsides. It was a difficult decision, but it was the right decision to make. Your physical health and safety are of utmost concern to us. Your mental health, and the mental health of your family, are important, too. And so, we are still here for you. As mental health professionals, our guiding principles remain unchanged. We remain calm, caring, and connected in everything we do for you. We are adhering to social distancing measures, but remain connected in our caring.
