Description

“There are two purposes of an evaluation in my mind: preservation of self-esteem for the child and peace of mind for parents.”

Preschool assessment is a relatively untouched topic, but that changes with this interview! In it, Dr. Stephanie Meyer sits down to chat with Dr. Sharp about her extensive work in assessing children under five years old. This course covers a wide range of topics, from Dr. Meyer's general approach to testing all the way to specific measures that she uses. Here are a few other topics that come up during the discussion:

  • Why Dr. Meyer doesn’t charge for missed testing sessions or late cancels
  • Contextual factors that could impact testing results
  • Why Dr. Meyer loves the Feifer Assessment of Reading
  • The earliest that Dr. Meyer diagnoses ADHD

Target audience: Psychologists, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, addiction counselors, nurses.
