Who can they help? LEP’s work with children and adults in such areas as learning disabilities, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Tourette Syndrome, and school adjustment issues of all kinds.
How can they help? LEP’s are experts in how people learn and in the development of learning styles. They observe in classrooms, attend school meetings with parents, provide information regarding learning styles, and help parents select the right school placement for their child. As educational consultants, LEP’s help parents understand special education laws and develop goals for 504 Accommodations and Special Education.
What kind of tests do LEPs offer? Licensed Educational Psychologists are highly trained experts at testing children and adults for learning styles and special needs status for all academic levels and occupational settings. They provide testing for college test accommodations including the GRE, MCAT, CBEST, and LSAT.
