Teacher and Classroom Consultation
We provide a comprehensive approach to psychological evaluations including input from families, schools, physicians, and other professionals when appropriate. Psychological evaluations for schools typically involve multiple steps to collect information on developmental history, school functioning, behavioral functioning, and relevant medical issues. Testing may include the following depending on the referral question: parent and child interviews, intellectual and academic assessments, psychological and emotional evaluations, behavioral rating scales, direct observations, teacher interview, and school/medical record reviews.
Therapists at Will’s Way conduct individual, class-wide, and school wide consultation for teachers and other school personnel in both public and private settings. Consultation services aim to increase students’ appropriate behaviors while decreasing maladaptive behaviors in settings outside of home.
Will’s Way staff are available to provide individual, small group, and large group staff development and staff training opportunities. It is our goal to collaborate with local schools and community agencies to build knowledge, expertise and confidence in applying behavioral techniques in group settings. We work with organizations to help identify goals and design training programs specified to their needs.
