If you have a child who receives special education services, you’ve probably received a copy of a psychological report on your child. If you are like most parents, you had trouble understanding what the report said and what it meant.
The average psycho-educational evaluation is written at or above the 16th grade level so it isn’t surprising that you were confused. The people who need to understand the findings of your child’s evaluation – you and your child’s teachers – say psychological reports are not helpful.
John Hite, a friend who is in graduate school, developed a survey about evaluations, If you meet the criteria to participate, please give us a hand and take the survey. The results may be used to improve psychological reports so parents and teachers can understand their findings.
Criteria for participation
1. You must have a child between ages 3 and 21
2. Your child had a psycho-educational or psychological evaluation within the last year OR you considered referring your child for an evaluation within the last year.
The survey takes approximately 15 minutes. It involves reading two purposely shortened reports, then answering questions (all online). The study is anonymous – you will not be asked to provide any personal information.
