The Provincial government is looking to reduce what’s now a 3-and-a-half-year wait for student psychological assessments, to less than one year.
To do that, it announced a number of initiatives Monday, with $2-million in funding.
The initiatives include adding two psychologist positions, and contracting private psychologists.
Education Minister Jordan Brown says the partnership with some private psychologists will help clear a block of assessments by the fall of this year.
There are currently about 435 students on the assessment list.
