Spring Break and Child Assessments

Understanding Different Types of Learning Disabilities

As spring break approaches, parents are starting to plan their family vacations and looking forward to a break from the hectic school routine. But did you know that spring break is also the best time to have your child evaluated for conditions like ADHD, Autism, or Dyslexia?

 

At Behavioral Health Clinic and Mind Team, we work with many children and their families throughout the year, and we have found that spring break is the optimal time to schedule an evaluation. Here’s why:

 

1. Teachers are available for feedback: Teachers play a crucial role in identifying and evaluating learning differences in children. During the school year, it can be difficult to coordinate with teachers and gather their observations about your child. But during spring break, teachers are usually available and can provide valuable insights that can aid in the evaluation process.
 
2. Classes are not in session: During the school year, your child may miss important classes if they have to attend an evaluation. But during spring break, classes are not in session, so your child won’t miss any school days. This means you can schedule the evaluation without worrying about interfering with your child’s education.
 
3. Time to implement new strategies and accommodations: If your child is diagnosed with a learning difference during the spring break evaluation, you will have several months to implement new strategies and accommodations before the next school year begins. This gives you and your child time to figure out what works best and to start the next school year with a successful plan in place.
 

At Behavioral Health Clinic and Mind Team, we understand the importance of early intervention and how it can positively impact a child’s academic and social success. That’s why we recommend scheduling an evaluation during spring break. Our team of experts will work with you and your child to assess any potential learning differences and create a plan that fits your child’s individual needs.

So, as you plan your spring break activities, consider taking the time to invest in your child’s future by scheduling an evaluation. You can start by filling out a quick questionnaire on our website, and one of our experts will be in touch with you to help you take the first step towards a successful academic journey.
