Dr. Rhonda Wizniak

Registered Psychologist

 

I started my journey into psychology as a kindergarten teacher in a rural setting.  After teaching for four years, I became intrigued with learning more about the diverse learning, emotional, and behavioural needs of the students I was working with. 

I completed my masters and doctoral studies in educational psychology focusing in learning, development and assessment.

Services

I provide assessments and consultation services in:

  • Cognitive / intellectual ability: giftedness, challenges with processing verbal and visual information, memory
  • Academic ability: achievement levels in reading, writing, and math
  • Social and emotional functioning: anxiety, social concerns, depression
  • Behaviour:  acting out behaviour, inattention, anger, impulsivity

Assessments can answer a wide range of questions. Some of these may include whether a child has a learning disability, requires specialized learning supports, is impacted by anxiety, or why a child has difficulty getting along with others.

...who are struggling in some aspect of their school experience. Recommendations are provided to help caregivers and teachers support students in achieving personal success. Reports include information on how an individual’s strengths can be used to promote ongoing development. I have also done assessments on adults to assist with supports outside of school and provide appropriate diagnoses.
