Dr. Edwin Chin, Clinical Psychologist, will give a presentation to discuss the common issues relating to psycho-educational assessments.

Discussion Points:

  • Reasons for referral – Why do schools request assessments? How does it help them help my child?
  • Assessment process – What are Psychometrics and what exactly do they assess?
  • Understanding the results – Scaled scores, T-Scores, Composite scores, Percentiles – what do all the numbers mean (and which one do I need to look at)?
