The Value of Assessments and Learning Profiles

October 11 @ 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm PDT

Learn how assessments can​ be invaluable to parents—providing a complete picture of ​a ​​learner preferences, strengths, and challenges.

 

Event Details:

According to our 2022 Neurodiversity Report, 40% of parents know or suspect their child has a learning difference. Parents also report that they want to understand how their child learns best, yet deciding whether or not your child needs an assessment of any kind can be daunting for parents and caregivers. There are a variety of evaluation tools and processes that present layers of confusion to most parents but it doesn’t have to be that way. The evaluation process should be empowering and seen as a positive experience, for both the child and parents. Challenges can be reframed as areas of growth and the evaluation process can give kids the tools to understand how they learn and know how to approach specific tasks. In this webinar, our panelists will compare psychological assessments, learning evaluations and general screenings and will explain the importance of creating an individualized learning profile in order to empower the child, parents/caregivers, and the rest of their ecosystem of support to advocate for their needs.

The webinar will consist of a 30-minute panelist discussion followed by an opportunity for attendees to directly interact with the speakers in a live Q&A session.
