When a child is struggling in school, the first step to finding help is figuring out what’s getting in his way. As a starting point, you need an evaluation of your child’s learning profile, to identify strengths and weaknesses, and suggest what kind of support he might need to thrive.
To help parents understand the process, Dr. Matthew Cruger, the senior director of the Learning and Development Center at the Child Mind Institute, teamed up with Understood.org to walk us through the process. In this video he shares clips from a real evaluation, and explains what’s going on at each step.
In a follow-up webinar, Dr. Cruger answers questions from parents, including those listed below.
