• Parents are advised to ensure that the student is well rested and provided with something to eat and drink before the assessment. This is an important factor in gathering accurate results.

 

  • Parents may be asked to complete rating scales regarding the student’s functioning. Parents are advised to inform the examiner if there are any challenges with completing these forms. 

 

  • The assessment can usually last several hours so it is wise to bring snacks and refreshments for the student during breaks.

 

During the evaluation process, parents are often not present in the room with the examiner and the student. Feel free to bring something to keep you occupied.
