Torrance Psychological Assessments are performed for the betterment of the student as well as for the help of the special education teacher. Before a student can be approved for special education services, he or she must go through a psychological assessment that shows that these services are indeed required. This assessment will show what type of mental, emotional or academic issues the student has that require specialty care, such as one-on-one tutoring or a separate classroom.
Assisting Torrance Children through the Psychological Assessments Process
Most Torrance Psychological Assessments are done in the school. This allows the child to be somewhere comfortable with him or her. The assessor is usually a school psychologist or psychiatrist who has performed many of these assessments and knows just how to treat children to make them feel at ease.
After the assessment, parents may be able to speak to the psychologist if there is enough time. They will also be given a report either on the same day or within a few days. They should be given a chance to speak in person with the psychologist to share any concerns that they have.
