During the Individualized Education Program (IEP) meeting, the school psychologist briefly goes over the assessment results in less than five minutes. You go home with a 20-page psycho-educational assessment report with lots of technical terms and seemingly obscure pieces of information that appear to be in a strange language to you. Now what?
In addition to all the new Special Education language and acronyms, now you have to make sense of all the complicated results and terms in your child’s report. What do they mean for your child? How is processing speed different from perceptual reasoning? What does the gap between your child’s IQ and his academic performance mean? What is the relationship between IQ and cognitive testing?
These are a few strategies I have found helpful when working with families of gifted and 2e children who experience sensory sensitivities or Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD).
