What are multidisciplinary evaluations? Today, we are going to answer this question, including: what to expect through the process, what does it offer for parents and teachers, and how does it help education, ongoing?
Triton Support Services multidisciplinary evaluations establish a baseline of your child’s current abilities education with regard to “compensatory services”, including: academic learning, Speech & Language, and Occupational Therapy (sensory regulation). Triton’s team works together to evaluate your child using standardized tests to assess how they are functioning in relation to national norms. Incorporating parent concerns, evaluations may include any number of skills including but not limited to: reading fluency, language and vocabulary, articulation and phonology, motor skills, sensory processing, and social emotional awareness.
The complete, multidisciplinary evaluation only takes about three hours to complete.
Parents meet with our Director of Programs, through an online or in clinic consultation, after the evaluation to go over their child’s performance. This consultation offers a thorough recommendation for instruction. Every recommendation is unique, as every child is unique and will perform differently. Some students will benefit the most from daily therapy, whereas others may need only once a week. Our students vary in their age, needs and abilities, and therefore need our individualized instruction that is tailored specifically to them.
Students can attend their instruction sessions either in person, at our center in Rancho Bernardo, or online.
In addition to providing multidisciplinary therapies to our students, we incorporate parents as an integral part of our process. Providers meet with parents biweekly in Parent Coaching sessions to discuss a child’s instructional goals and response to instruction. Parents receive a written report detailing their child’s current progress, and learn about implementing these objectives at home when necessary.
