About

I mainly specialize in children's psychoeducational assessments for giftedness (Westmount, GATE), ADHD, learning disabilities, and social/emotional/behavioural concerns. I also use therapeutic play to support and develop issues such as low self-esteem, assertiveness, specific skill development, anxiety/depression, coping skills, social skills, ADHD symptomology, phobias, bullying, trauma, divorce, grief and aggression (3-14yrs). Play is the primary mode of communication for children. I use an integrative approach, drawing from various play modalities depending on the child and presenting issue. Parenting strategies also provided.
I have 5 years of experience in psychoeducational assessment, and 20 years working with children in various capacities, particularly in the school system, both public and private. I am also a therapeutic play practitioner, as well as a trauma specialist. I have extensive experience in assessing giftedness and understanding the unique accompanying traits.
Originally from England. Mum of two young boys. It's important to go above and beyond expectations. Education is not a one-size-fits-all approach. I believe in finding your child's unique strengths/challenges to better tailor their education to their needs. Through assessment or therapy, let's support your child by providing the tools needed to flourish.

Sarah Jl McEvoy's Groups

Friendship and Social Skills Training for children

Is your child shy? Withdrawn? Lacking social skills? Are there conflicts with peers? Help your child flourish socially and emotionally. I provide group therapy based on programs such as the 'Social Thinking' program and the 'FRIENDS' program. Sessions are strength-based, drawing from cognitive-behavioural techniques. Sessions will start when interest allows a small group to be formed. Age range 3-12.
