Independent Psychological Evaluations

Brain Puzzle

Dr. Jennifer Jetté offers forensic psychological evaluations for insurance companies and lawyers in disability insurance matters, workers’ compensation claims, and personal injury claims. These assessments, also called Psychological Independent Medical Evaluations (IME), involve a psychologist with no previous involvement in the individual’s care examining the individual to provide a DSM-5 diagnosis, identify any preexisting mental health issues and how these issues may have been impacted by the accident/injury, and provide an opinion regarding causation. The psychologist also provides an opinion regarding factors that may impact recovery from the accident/injury, makes recommendations regarding work restrictions and modified duties and makes suggestions for future treatment.

Psychoeducational Assessments

Psychoeducational assessments are conducted to better understand a child’s academic strengths and weaknesses. We use a variety of psychological tests to evaluate academic achievement, thinking and reasoning abilities, memory and attention. We also may evaluate a child’s behaviour and/or social and emotional functioning. Our comprehensive psycho-educational assessments provide detailed recommendations and practical strategies designed to help your child improve his or her academic performance. Our reports also help parents obtain support from school, doctors, and eliglble sources of funding, such as the Disability Tax Credit.
