What is an Educational Diagnostician?

Educational Diagnosticians serve on the Pupil Appraisal team and specialize in educational diagnostic services, academic assessments, classroom-based assessments, curriculum-based assessments, learning styles, educational intervention strategies, and special/regular education support.  They also administer and interpret academic assessments to students being evaluated for special education eligibility. The Educational Diagnostician is the "academic" specialist of the team, as he/she is the only member of the team that MUST have had prior teaching experience.  The Pupil Appraisal team also consists of a School Psychologist and a Social Worker.
