Preparing for assessments

Preparing for Assessments
 
Try to be prepared for an assessment and make sure you are really clear about what you and your child need so you can ask for this.
 
Make sure you have thought about how your child’s disability affects him or her and the rest of the family – including the impact that it has had on your own life. It can be hard to do this but the person doing the assessment needs to build a picture of your needs. He or she may need to take that information back to their agency so a more senior manager can make the decision about what resources you might get.
 
The more you can contribute to the assessment, the more helpful this will be.
