The Academic Edge
A margin of superiority or an advantage
To surpass or beat by a small margin
Having a professional evaluation does not prevent your child from gaining educational opportunities.
Instead, these evaluations provide a framework of your child's
intellectual, cognitive and emotional strengths and challneges.
Once you understand how your child learns and navigates within his environment, your collaboration with teachers, tutors, coaches and other professionals, helps provide the most appropriate support. When your child's abilities are strengthened with the necessary supports and accommodations, they gain the academic edge!
What are the signs that my child may need to see a therapist?
I often tell parents that they should trust their intuition. If you think something is distressing to your child, its definitely worth having a discussion with a professional to explore the situation.
