The GREAT Partnership has a multidisciplinary assessment team that works with the family in a play-based assessment format. This team is compposed of a school psychologist, a speech and language pathologist, and a school nurse. The team works out of the Assessment Center located at 3450 Tamarack Rd.
There is a playroom set up which provides the team the space necessary to conduct the assessment. Parents are present for this initial play-based assessment session. This session last between 60 to 90 minutes.
Standardized instruments are utilized by the assessment team as deemed necessary. These standardized instruments would be used to find further information about a child's cognitive functioning, speech and language levels and social/emotional behaviors. Additional arrangements are made if standardized assessment is necessary.
After all of the assessment is completed, a meeting to discuss the results will be scheduled with the parent and district of residence.
