The Ed-Psych Assessment Series
Part One: Before Testing Essentials 

If you feel your child is not developing or learning as expected, and strategies put in place by your child’s teacher are not making a difference, the next step may be a psycho-educational evaluation. 

How do I know when a psycho-educational evaluation is warranted? Have you already had a comprehensive assessment of your child's functioning?  Are you considering this next step?  

This presentation will take a closer look at the areas typically assessed in a psycho-educational evaluation and address common questions such as:

  • Why and when should we consider a psycho-educational assessment?
  • Who is able to assess?
  • What are the tests like and how do they relate to school performance?
  • What should the assessment process look like?
  • What do the scores mean?
  • What should I do with the results?
This Roundtable is appropriate for parents of school children, teenagers, and adolescents. Educators are welcome.

This is a great chance to hear from a respected professional, share your own experiences with other parents, talk about support strategies, and explore your personal questions in greater depth.

Survey on Medical and Mental Health Professionals

Share Your Experience!
We receive calls every week from parents and teachers asking for referrals to qualified professionals for educational evaluations, mental health support or management of medications.  Often parents don’t want to explore this topic publicly and find it very stressful and confusing to identify the qualified support resources they need. 

We want to do more to help parents seeking to support a child, or themselves with learning or attentional issues by pooling our collective experiences and helping to identify qualified medical and mental health practitioners.  If you have used the services of a medical or mental health professional within the past three years, please take three minutes to respond to our questionnaire. 

All individual responses will be kept confidential. Survey results will not be shared publicly but anyone seeking a referral may contact FOCUS and benefit from our collective efforts. 

We encourage you to share this survey link to others you may know who have sought the help of medical or mental health professionals to support a child, adolescent or adult with main stream learning differences and related mental health issues.
