Assessments for Social, Emotional, and Behavioural Functioning:

Social Functioning:

Assesses children’s ability to make friends, keep friends, understand social cues, and understand other’s perspectives. This is achieved through interviews, naturalistic observation, and standardized measures.

Emotional Functioning:

Assesses children’s anxiety (performance, separation, coping), mood fluctuations, and self-esteem through interviews, observations, and standardized measures.

Behavioural Functioning:

Assesses children’s behaviour through parent/ teacher interviews, as well as clinical and naturalistic observation. The goal of such assessments are to determine the triggers for a child’s behaviour and the environmental factors that may be inadvertently reinforcing these behaviours.
