The PsychoEd Clinic

A Psychoeducational Assessment can be vital to a student’s journey to success; however, many students who need this assessment have to wait on long waitlists. Given how important these assessments can be to student success, they should be more widely available and accessible to all individuals who would benefit from them. I have founded the PsychoEd Clinic, alongside a team of interdisciplinary professionals, to provide quality psychoeducational assessments to institutions, families, and individuals. We also develop innovative technology to make assessments more readily accessible and affordable
