No two people are the same, and a cookie-cutter approach does not work when it comes to assessing individuals. Everyone has their own unique set of needs, abilities, strengths, and weaknesses. It is my job to help children, teens, and adults identify specific factors that could be limiting their ability to learn and grow, not just in school, but in their personal lives. Although understanding limitations is a target of assessment, I find it extremely important to recognize and incorporate my clients’ positive qualities and areas of strength in order to help them function optimally in their daily lives. I also view myself as an advocate for children who tend to “slip through the cracks” at school due to being “differently wired” or having unique learning needs, and helping individuals learn how to use their skills to their advantage to become the best versions of themselves.
