Educational and psychological assessments are a common event for primary and secondary school children, with anywhere from 12 to 20 per cent of the school population assessed by one or more professionals in different disciplines during their childhood. Despite this, there remains a significant amount of misinformation about the process.

Parents frequently ask 'What happens?', 'What will my child be doing?' and 'What do the results mean for my child's education?' Does My Child Need Help? clearly explains the assessment process. Test results are visually illustrated and linked to different educational and psychological problems. The perspectives of parents, resource teachers and special needs coordinators are also included.

Does My Child Need Help? focuses on the step-by-step process of: Initial contact with the psychologist Subjective assessment - behaviour observations, background information, existing reports, etc.

Objective assessment - cognitive tests, rating scales and other tests Diagnosis The components of the psychologist's report Recommendations Follow up The focus is on understanding the assessment process and managing frequently occurring problems such as dyslexia, ADHD, autistic spectrum disorders and behavioural difficulties. Using simple graph techniques, the author demonstrates how various educational, behavioural, social and emotional disorders are diagnosed. Treatment programmes and educational supports are also outlined.

While aimed primarily at parents, Does My Child Need Help? will also prove useful to teachers, special needs assistants, administrators, students, healthcare professionals and psychologists.
