The Preschool Comprehensive Assessment & Treatment Clinic (PCAT) assesses children who require more intensive assessment than that provided through the Infant and Preschool Assessment Service (IPAS). These children have complex developmental and social-emotional needs. The type of assessment is specific to each child’s and family’s needs and may include home and school observations, standardized assessment tools, and / or inclusion in a preschool classroom group.
The eligibility requirements are as follows:
Healthcare providers should consult the Alberta Referral Directory for service referral information.
The legal guardian is required to request a referral from the child’s pediatrician / physician.
