Frequently
Asked Questions

A psychiatrist is a medical doctor who typically prescribes medication and makes clinical diagnoses, while a psychologist has completed either their Doctorate or Masters degree in psychology and usually conducts psychotherapy and assessments, as well as making clinical diagnoses.
Psychotherapy is a talk-based therapy that is intended to help people improve and maintain their mental health and well-being.
The main determinant of the effectiveness of psychotherapy is the relationship between the therapist and the client. It is through this trusting and caring relationship that clients feel understood and learn strategies that bring about positive change in their thinking, feelings, behaviour, and social functioning.

OHIP does not pay for psychologists’ private services. Some extended health insurance plans will reimburse all or part of the fees paid to a psychologist. Extended healthcare insurance plans differ considerably in the types of coverage they provide. Please check your plan carefully to see what the coverage is for psychological services, the claim procedure, details required on receipts, payment options, and whether or not you require a letter of referral from your physician.

The Canada Revenue Agency has ruled that non-reimbursed fees paid to a registered psychologist in Ontario may be claimed as medical expenses on your income tax return.

ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder that starts in childhood and persists into adulthood. If you have always had difficulty concentrating, paying attention to details, making careless mistakes, feeling restless, sitting still, talking a lot, interrupting others, being easily distractible, planning and organizing, easily forgetting instructions or struggling to listen when others are speaking, then an assessment to determine if you have ADHD would be helpful.

An ADHD assessment looks at the history and current presentation of your inattentive and hyperactivity symptoms, as well as your learning, memory, and executive functioning profile.

To determine if you are gifted, you must complete an intellectual assessment, and for some school boards you must also complete a partial academic assessment.
