Fees

Fees are fixed at $200.00 per hour* for all services. A typical psychoeducational assessment requires 13-15 hours to complete and includes the following:

  • Intake interview with one or both parents/caregivers (1.5 hours); the child does not attend this session
  • One-on-one assessment with child (typically 5 - 6 hours). However, depending on the type of assessment requested, complexity, and approach of the child this could take more time than is typical.  If your child has had a recent academic assessment at school this might reduce the assessment time needed.
  • Feedback meeting with parents/caregivers (1 hour) 
  • Administration time to send questionnaires, score protocols and questionnaires, and review/conceptualize information (1-1.5 hours)
  • Psychological Report. Report writing time is capped at 5 hours. One half of the payment ($500 ) is made at the feedback session to reflect work already completed, and the remaining half ($500) is due when the report is ready. 
  •  Overall, an average assessment will typically cost between $2,500 and $3,000. However, this amount can vary depending on the simplicity or complexity of the assessment. ​

 

Payments

 Payment is to be made at the end of each appointment, and an invoice will be issued accordingly. Cash, cheque, credit cards and e-transfer are accepted methods of payment. Interest will be charged on a monthly basis at a rate of 10% per annum for overdue accounts.
 

Cancellation & Late Policy

  • Any appointments that are not cancelled with 24 hour notice may be billed the regular session rate for the time booked. No-shows are also subject to that billing procedure. If you are late for an appointment, I will try to accommodate if I can; however, the full hourly rate is billed regardless.  

* These fees are below the recommended fee guidelines published by the Ontario Psychological Association, who have recommended $225 per hour since 2013.
