How we explain your child’s assessment findings

After your child’s assessment our team may recommend another session to discuss any findings from the assessment and ensure you have an opportunity to ask questions. We will also discuss the benefits of learning more about your child’s strengths, their learning preferences and about your family routines at home and in the community. Collectively this discussion will ensure a Services Support Plan effectively represents how we will work together to achieve your goals.
