Specific tests will be administered over the course of 2 to 3 sessions to help address the following questions about the child:
- Why does the child continue to have difficulty adjusting to work demands at school?
- The child’s behavior has recently changed making it increasingly difficult for family and friends to interact with her. Does she suffer from a mental illness and what form of mental health services would help?
- After the child was diagnosed with a medical condition (or was involved in an accident), his thinking, memory, attention, and planning skills appear to have worsened – is there any way to confirm my concerns? What can be done to help?
In addition to classroom observations, I will consider conducting home-based assessments, if the child is more comfortable in that setting.
