Psychological assessments are utilized in a variety of settings to understand and individual’s unique strengths and areas of need. Psychological evaluations are also utilized to determine whether children/adults have one or more of the conditions which may indicate the presence of a developmental disability. As a parent/caregiver you may be wondering how to prepare your child and what to expect from the evaluation process. This presentation aims to demystify the evaluation process and provide concrete strategies to support parents/caregivers as they prepare themselves and their child to participate in psychological evaluations. The presentation will also provide information to help understand results. Join us in a supportive space to learn about the evaluation process and address common questions.

Currently, all offerings will be scheduled as Zoom meetings.
