My consultation service can be customized to the individual needs of the client and typically follow one or more of this approach (a-la-cart service):
Review of school records and previous evaluations
Review of school records and previous evaluations, followed by a meeting with the parents, enables me to give parents a clear understanding of their child’s needs and a direction for their child’s school program.
Evaluation and comparison of school programs allows me to make recommendations about school and program placement issues. I am available to visit schools, review curriculums, and determine if there is a good fit between the student and school.
School observations enables me to gather information about the child’s functioning in the classroom. An observation provides information about the functional skills in a group setting. The child’s ability to attend, follow directions, complete work, and interact with others are best observed in the classroom.
Referrals to other professionals
Referrals to other professionals are available when additional information is needed. Referrals to tutors and specialists are available.
