Helmsing Consulting is a Regina-based company specializing in intellectual, academic, behavioural, and vocational assessments for children, adolescents, and adults. Owner, Joan Helmsing, M.Ed., R.Psych. has been a classroom teacher, a special education teacher and is a registered educational psychologist.  Assessments may identify academic learning disabilities, cognitive disabilities, attention deficits and/or other disorders which can interfere with the development of a client’s potential in school, at work and in life.

Utilizing standardized tests, checklists and informal questionnaires cognitive, academic, and vocational strengths and weaknesses can be identified, and coping strategies and accommodations can be recommended. Referrals may also be made to other professionals for further investigation, diagnosis, and treatment.

A behavioural assessment is $600. It screens for ADHD, depression, anxiety, and other issues which may be hindering a client from being successful. Reassessment after treatment is included.

A psycho-educational assessment includes a behavioural assessment and is $1,800. In addition to screening for behavioural issues, it assesses cognitive, oral language and achievement levels. A post-conference is provided with the psycho-educational assessment.

I have been an educator for over 50 years and an assessment professional for over 40 years and continue to enjoy every minute of it. I began classroom teaching in 1969 and, in 1978, I started assessing elementary school children for academic learning disabilities in my role as a learning assistance teacher. I started a private practice in 1989, assessing children, adolescents, and adults. I incorporated my business in 2000 and registered with the College of Psychologists in 2002. In assessing and diagnosing clients with unique needs, I have been able to recommend strategies and accommodations for adult clients, parents, and teachers. Please do not hesitate to contact me so we can discuss the options available to resolve your unique situation. I look forward to hearing from you.
