Are you an adult referred for an assessment?

You may be struggling at work or in relationships, or it may be hard to control your moods or aspects of your behavior. You may notice changes in your memory. Perhaps you have had a brain injury, or you live with a medical disorder that impacts your thinking or emotions. An assessment clarifies your strengths and illuminates what is getting in your way, so treatment and support plans can be created to help move you forward.
