We are pleased to have a team of Registered Psychologists, Registered Provisional Psychologists and Masters and PhD level practicum and internship students specializing in Learning Disabilities working with us at Foothills Academy Community Services to conduct psycho-educational assessments, provide counselling and to facilitate small group programs. We are a teaching facility with all our students supervised by a Registered Psychologist.
Who do we work with?
Children, adolescents, adults, and families affected by Learning Disabilities and associated disorders (e.g., ADHD, anxiety, DCD, social skill difficulties, etc.) are our primary target group.
Many private and employer benefit plans provide coverage for psychological services. It is recommended that parents/clients discuss their coverage with their insurer to determine whether our services will be covered.
Any costs for such services as psycho-educational assessments, counselling, or consultation that are not reimbursed through insurance may be claimed as a medical expense upon completing your income tax.
The Let’s Be Social and Girls Only! group programs are also eligible for funding through Family Supports for Children with Disabilities (FSCD). Contact your FSCD worker to see if your child would qualify.
Bursaries are also available depending on income. Please inquire about payment options.
