Medical-Legal Assessments & Opinion

In the medical/legal context, Educational Connections has been retained to address education-related issues for both Plaintiff and Defense Counsel and in court actions. As well, we have assisted counsel and insurers in their handling of first party claims.

Whereas a Neuropsychologist addresses questions relating to the relationships between the brain and behavior, a Psychoeducational perspective focuses on the determination of an individual’s ability to learn, and the conditions to support it. A Psychoeducational Psychologist can determine whether an individual’s academic history and/or compensatory potential was/is challenged, and work with the medical, rehabilitation and educational team to develop and monitor a remedial/rehabilitation program.

Educational Connections provides expert diagnostic opinion of an individual’s learning potential and/or project potential for independent success within school, the workplace or the community.
