Her assessments focus on providing diagnostic information and include individualized recommendations to optimize each client’s learning style based on cognitive strengths and weaknesses. She is actively involved in school meetings that help parents, students, teachers and administrators incorporate assessment results in order to strategize meaningful educational objectives for the client.
