Pediatric Psychology Services

Psychological services can be an important part of the overall care for children and their families. If you have concerns regarding your toddler, preschool or kindergarten aged child’s development, or if your child is experiencing behavioural or complex health issues, Pediatric Psychology Services may be appropriate. A comprehensive psychological assessment may assist in understanding your child’s challenges in hopes of finding the right avenues for early intervention and/or consultation.
