The school / teacher will only be contacted with the express permission of the parents. Otherwise all reports are strictly Private and Confidential. If the assessment is to support the child at school we advice that teachers be consulted and included as part of the assessment process. This contact can build rapport with educators to ensure that recommendations from the reports are put into action and the best interest of the child is the focus of intervention and support.

We will send the report to you within 4 weeks of the feedback session.
