WHAT IS AN EDUCATIONAL DIAGNOSTICIAN?
 
Educational diagnosticians share an ability to assess and diagnose the learning problems of students.  They are usually part of a multidisciplinary team, that is, professionals from several different backgrounds who utilize their particular skills and areas of expertise to make the decisions for placing students with learning problems.  Frequently, they are also key support personnel who counsel the children and consult with teachers, parents, and others on the child's progress.
 
Educational Diagnosticians:
  • Work as a member of a student's interdisciplinary team, and are often responsible for initial and ongoing psycho-educational assessment. 
  • Work collaboratively with other assessment personnel, such as speech/language therapists, occupational and physical therapists, school psychologists, counselors, and social workers to determine eligibility for special education services.
  • Provide input to the IEP committee regarding student's academic strengths and weaknesses based on psycho-educational testing.
  • Interpret results of psycho-educational testing in relation to student's educational placement and programming to parents, teachers, administrators, and students.
  • Monitor student's educational progress in relation to his IEP goals and objectives, recommending appropriate modifications and accommodations to curricular content and instruction, as needed.
  • Provide ongoing consultative services to school, community, and parents regarding student's educational needs.
