Admissions and Assessment
Supporting Education Through Evaluation and Knowledge
Bellavista S.E.E.K. is a registered child development clinic where a number of expert multidisciplinary teams, under the guidance of a lead psychologist, conduct in-depth cognitive and educational assessments for children age 3 – 18, both nationally and internationally. These global assessments provide the necessary information needed to support children either in the current school environment and those who will come into Bellavista School or attend any other support environment.
The team works together to assess all aspects of the child’s developmental progress. Psychologists may assess using the Griffiths, WIPPSI, WISC-V or CAS in addition to conducting a scholastic battery of assessment that looks closely at reading, spelling, Mathematics and written output in the classroom. The team is enhanced with Occupational Therapists, Speech-Language Therapists and Remedial Therapists who bring their own expertise in their specific fields to assist the parent in making informed educational decisions. Parents are included in the collaborative process and may also invite professionals working with their child to the detailed case conferences. A well-structured and thorough written report, with carefully considered recommendations, is prepared to assist parents in guiding the process into the future.
Bellavista S.E.E.K. is well equipped to prepare reports for examining bodies at a high school level to motivate for exemptions and accommodations in secondary school years.
