Is my child eligible for special education?


Any child may be eligible for special education services.  A child that is not accessing (benefiting) from the general education curriculum may be eligible for special education services within one of the eligibility categories below.  Understanding the intricacies of each category can be difficult and I urge you to ask questions of the school or consult with a professional to ensure you are fully informed.


 

What are the potential advantages of having a clinical neuropsychological assessment as compared to a school-based assessment?


Public school settings often fail obtain a thorough and complete understanding of the individual child and therefore often fail to accurately assess the full range of individual strengths and weaknesses possessed by each child.  Subsequently, school assessments often fail to identify children that require unique educational services to fully benefit from school.  Furthermore, the cursory nature of many school assessments does not adequately inform the remedial process meaning that with limited information there are limits on understanding how to best meet the needs of the individual. A more thorough assessment, and a better understanding of a child’s needs, will likely result in more effective remedial programming.  Limitation in information may be prevent a child from receiving the services they need and or entitled to and therefore prevent them from reaching their full potential.  Having a comprehensive clinical evaluation, that assesses the neuropsychological domains not assessed in a typical psycho-educational evaluation, will serve to better inform all individuals working to support the development and achievement of your child.  Furthermore, our licensed psychologists are able to clinically diagnose conditions and will be able to thoroughly understand and interpret the outcomes of the evaluation in terms of understanding the full clinical presentation of the child.
