Why Educational Diagnosticians?

Educational Diagnosticians are uniquely qualified to provide skilled educational assessment services to children with disabilities. Using their combined classroom teaching experience and diagnostic skills, Educational Diagnosticians conduct valid, individualized assessments to determine eligibility, develop effective instruction and programming, and monitor student progress. Throughout the United States, there is a demand for qualified assessment specialists as school districts implement large-scale assessment requirements and individualized student evaluations required by federal law. In New Mexico, there is a significant need for Educational Diagnosticians in both urban as well as rural school districts.
