Intensive Educational Assessments
When your young student is receiving many calls home, referrals and red cards, poor report cards, difficulty focusing or engaging appropriately with peers, etc., it can be hard to know how to support positive changes. Teachers often want to know, "How should we handle it when. . . ?"
Intensive educational assessments are designed to answer this question, attending to the deeper underlying issues that may be driving difficult behaviors and underachievement.
During an intensive educational assessment:
I discreetly follow your student through several academic subjects and less structured social times (lunch, recess)
I will speak directly with teachers and other school professionals for their perspective
I may spend some time talking with your student directly or sitting beside them, noticing their learning style and way of approaching academic work
I may review any psychological evaluations, IEPs, Functional Behavioral Assessments, 504 plans, and/or IQ testing
