Types of Assessments
Children who have disabilities and special health care needs are often subject to several types of assessments meant to better identify their area(s) of need. In an ongoing series, WarmLine will share different assessments, what they look for and how that information is used to support the child.  This month: Assistive Technology (AT) can't "cure" learning and attention issues, but it can help children work around their challenges. Read about the assistive technology assess process in this article from Understood.org. Read Now
