The assessment process may involve interviews, observations, standardised testing and consultations with other relevant professionals to better understand learning and developmental concerns. Assessment results obtained will provide greater insight into an individual’s learning or developmental needs as well as the nature and extent of difficulties. This in turn informs educational plans (i.e., placement, intervention, and accommodations) and behavioural intervention to improve educational or developmental outcomes. After the assessment, a face-to-face feedback session will be conducted to provide a verbal explanation of assessment findings and recommendations. In addition, a written assessment report containing the findings, diagnosis, and recommendations will be made available.
