I use a range of different types of assessments in order to obtain the maximum amount of clinical information.
I will meet with parents separately to the child to provide comprehensive feedback about the assessment. A diagnosis is provided during this feedback session if appropriate.
Receiving a diagnosis can be bring a range of emotions for parents, i.e. shock, relief, sadness, anxiety, hope - and it is important to remember that the purpose of a diagnosis is to understand the child's development and plan for the future.
All reports will be provided within 3 weeks of completion of the assessment. Reports are recognised by the National Council for Special Education which is the agency responsible for the assessment and provision of Resource Teaching and Special Needs Assistant (SNA support at school)
I will give a comprehensive feedback about the assessment and discuss an intervention plan. This plan will include a plan that will outline the number of sessions needed to bring about chagne and the cost of this plan.
