Dr. Karen Wilson Returns for Q & A Inclusive Education Project (IEP) Podcast

    • Education

Hello! We are always thrilled when Dr. Karen Wilson takes the time to visit with us on the podcast. This is a collaboration episode that will also air on her podcast, Diverse Thinking - Different Learning. Together with Dr. Karen, we are addressing some of the most common IEP-related questions in an effort to inform and educate parents. Join us to learn more!
Dr. Karen Wilson is a clinical neuropsychologist who specializes in pediatric assessments. She evaluates kids from age 4 through early adulthood where a struggle to learn indicates a suspected neurodevelopmental disorder. She figures out whether the problem is executive functioning, attention deficit, or inappropriate instruction. By evaluating various areas, she can pinpoint the reason for the struggle and formulate a plan for success for the child at home and school. 
Show Highlights:
Does my child need a diagnosis to get accommodations at school?What a parent should do to request an assessment/accommodationsWhat should parents do when they approach the teacher with concerns, but the teacher discourages an assessment?If I, as a parent, do not agree with the school’s assessment results and believe that something else is going on, what are my options?How an Individualized Educational Evaluation (IEE) can qualify a child for services in 13 different categoriesIf my child has a private assessment that shows a learning disability, do I request another IEP meeting with this data, or what is the next step?How a parent can ask for reimbursement for private evaluations/services and reconsideration for accommodations in schoolWhy the federal and state education laws only apply to federally-funded schools, but private school students can still access public school services (i.e., Parents who have chosen private education have not “given up” their rights to public school services.)If the school is recommending support that is not evidence-based, can I push back to ensure that my child gets an evidence-based intervention, and what should that look like?
