Recommendations are typically focused on remediation, accommodations, or a combination of both. They also are directed at encouraging the child to become engaged with tasks and a fully active participant in the classroom. The evaluation is to help the parents and child understand the profile of the child based on the specific strengths and weaknesses and the impact they have on functioning. It is usually helpful to tell children that you are interested in finding out the best way he or she learns to help the teachers know how to teach the student.
Contact the office to determine if an evaluation is deemed appropriate. If so, the child will be scheduled, with appointment confirmed via email. After approximately two weeks after the final information source (i.e.: rating scales, observation, etc.) is received, an extended feedback session with the parents is conducted. The report is typically given after the meeting.
