Our foundation is one of respect for everyone, with a commitment to listen and learn from evidence-based practice. We place the child at the centre of our work.
Our goal is to foster lasting change in the lives of the families we touch. We feel strongly about asking questions, seeking out answers, documenting change and learning from our actions.
SBSLG was founded to empower parents and caregivers to hold the hands of children and be their roots. Our mission is to give parents, caregivers, aunts and uncles, grandparents, teachers and therapists the tools necessary to help children not only grow, but to thrive.
Our vision began as a shared desire to teach children and their families to lead their best lives using evidence-based practices. We hope to offer services that make a difference, whether that be through diagnosis, assessment or therapy. We value…the child, the family, the science, and the future.

Don’t wait for an assesment by the board, your child’s best education is waiting.
School Psychologists are in short supply at our surrounding boards. The resources are getting slimmer and the needs greater. Identification of your child as an “Exceptional Learner” within the school board supports change moving forward.
As the education system changes, SBSLG will continue to be committed to assist families in learning how their child learns and retains information. Psycho-educational assessment is a process of testing that uses a variety of techniques and tools to form a hypothesis of learning, behavior and capabilities. A psycho-educational assessment identifies areas of strength and weakness in a student’s learning profile and provides a deeper understanding of their educational abilities. It can identify Learning Disabilities, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Intellectual Disabilities, and reading (dyslexia), writing (Dysgraphia) and math (Dyscalculia) challenges that can interfere with learning and success.
Assessment often leads to identification and the development of an Individual Education Plan (IEP) within the education system. The IEP creates an opportunity for teachers, parents, school administrators, related services personnel, and students (when appropriate) to work together to improve educational results for children. The IEP is thought to be the cornerstone of quality education for each child with a learning difference.
