In this module, Cate introduces the DDPE module series by discussing why it is so important to get an accurate diagnosis. She does so by demonstrating a real-life evaluation step by step.
Cate introduces the module series explaining the process of evaluating a child, Alex, from the parent questionnaire to developing IEP goals for the child. This module will focus on the background information Cate gathered about Alex. This included previous evaluations and therapy the child had received. Cate reveals that the child was assessed with standardized tests that were not appropriate and did not gain the necessary information to produce an accurate diagnosis. As a result, Alex did not receive the therapy he needed in a timely manner.
