We are parents of special education students who have joined together to provide information and support to each other.
We meet regularly with school administrators to give our input on the policies and programs that affect our children.
What to Know and What to Ask
If a child is struggling academically, socially or emotionally, a comprehensive evaluation can assess the underlying reasons and offer parents and teachers a set of tools for supporting the child’s development. Please join us to as we discuss:
- What makes a good neuropsychological evaluation?
- What are common complaints/pitfalls about evaluations?
- What questions should you ask as you choose a neuropsychologist?
- How does a child's age change the type of evaluation needed?
- How to get the most out of a neuropsychological evaluation
Presenters Dr. Nancy Roosa and Dr. Erin Gibbons are both pediatric neuropsychologists at NESCA, where they perform neurological evaluations on children with a wide range of attentional, learning, and developmental disabilities
