Friday’s grand opening of the Clinical Neuropsychology Service Clinic at the University of Windsor’s Psychological Services and Research Centre (PSRC) drew a large community crowd, with everyone from UWindsor president Alan Wildeman to community partners and potential clients on hand to check out the program’s new space.
The clinic provides neuropsychological assessments to individuals ranging from preschoolers through very elderly adults, and works with individuals who have known or suspected neurological, medical, or neurodevelopmental disorders across the lifespan.
Services, which are open to the public, are provided by graduate students under the supervision of faculty member neuropsychologists who are registered psychologists and members of the College of Psychologists of Ontario. Fees are charged on a sliding scale based on family income.
Clinical neuropsychology faculty member and area co-ordinator Carlin Miller said the clinic provides another alternative to people in the community waiting for assessment services.
“Today was a wonderful opportunity to make personal connections and reach out to members of the community who may need our services for their clients,” said Dr. Miller. “The University’s commitment to this program is vital to ensuring that these assessment services are more readily available and affordable to people who need them the most.”
