UnderstandABILITY – Demystifying Psychoeducational Assessments
About our Workshop:
A psycho-educational assessment identifies areas of strengths and challenges within a student’s learning profile, and provides a deeper understanding of his/her educational needs. It is also a necessity in identifying a student with a learning disability. Psycho-eds are challenging to understand, especially if you aren’t a psychologists or a teacher.
Please join speaker Susan Slack Miller as she explains psycho-educational assessments from a parent’s perspective with the intention of making it an accessible and usable document to support your child’s academic success.
Come prepared for an evening filled with lively discussion and interactive activities!
