Telehealth Assessments

Telehealth Psychological Consultation & Assessment

Due to the current pandemic, we are only able to offer select telehealth consultations and assessments.

To best support families during this time, Kinark has moved to alternative means of providing psychological consultations and assessments for children, youth, and families. Our consultations and diagnostic assessments are being delivered virtually through secure technology, including video conferencing and online questionnaires. Consultations are offered at no charge.

Telehealth assessments usually occur over two to three appointments and may include:

  • A screening session to ensure that a virtual assessment is appropriate to best meet the needs of your child. There is no cost for the screening session. If there is a cost associated with the assessment, this will be discussed with you prior to the assessment.
  • A diagnostic interview with caregivers and the child/youth (when appropriate) to better understand your child’s history, strengths, challenges and possible symptoms
  • A semi-structured, play-based assessment where caregivers will help the psychology team have critical observations of your child’s play, language, behaviour, and social skills
  • Online questionnaires
  • Feedback and recommendations

To participate in an assessment, there are specific requirements needed from caregivers, such as access to a hands-free device and secure Wi-Fi in your home.

Telehealth assessments currently available are:

This assessment will evaluate your child’s social communication skills and restrictive, repetitive behaviours to better understand your child’s development. An early ASD assessment can help us provide you with appropriate recommendations to the services and resources that meet the needs of your child and family.

Many individuals with ASD also struggle with worries, feelings of sadness, and challenging behaviour. This assessment will help us better understand your child or youth’s mental health symptoms, challenges, and strengths in order to help guide treatment planning.
