How will a typical assessment run?
Assessments can take place either in the child's school or in their home. Prior to the assessment, parents and teachers are consulted to discuss the child's needs and educational history which is then used to guide the assessment process.
The assessment takes approximately 3 hours on the day. Preliminary results are shared with parents and SENCo, followed by a report within two weeks which details the assessment findings with recommendations.
What will be the outcome?
For teachers and parents:
Better understanding of the depth and breadth of difficulties being experienced
Greater empathy for the child
A heightened and more balanced view of strengths alongside weaknesses

learning about their cognitive strengths

developing new strategies to tackle greatest difficulties
