To All Families and the Professionals that work with families:
Right now is an important time of year for PLANNING for the 2016-2017 School Year. Even though we are still working on wrapping up 2015-2016 school year issues, NOW is the time to plan for success for the 2016-2017 school year.
My advice to parents is:
1. If you haven’t already done so, it is time to schedule an evaluation with a psychologist/neuropsychologist for updated psychological testing (and testing in specific areas of suspected disability, for example, a speech and language evaluation or an assistive technology evaluation). Please discuss with me whether or not it is advisable to seek school district funding for these evaluations.
2. If your child is not yet in a private school, and you are considering a private school, visit and apply NOW (some schools deadlines may have already concluded).
3. Schedule a meeting with me to discuss BEST next steps for the 2016-2017 school year. I can help you plan for success for the 2016-2017 school year.
I have seen a record number of cases referred for settlement this year, and good planning is key. Of course, even with the best planning, your school district may decide not to settle - but this has been the exception rather than the rule in my practice.
To schedule an appointment, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 917-566-2677. I look forward to hearing from you!
