The LightHouse Arabia is pleased to work with school counselors and Special Education Need (SEN) coordinators year-round. Our Assessment Team of specialists offer psycho-educational assessments for school-aged children that are conducted by Clinical Psychologists. Our Assessment Team also provides free consultations to school counselors and Special Educational Need (SEN) coordinators on reports done by other Psychologists or professionals—so they can make the most out of the report.
How we can help
In addition to conducting comprehensive psychoeducational/neuropsychological assessments, our experts:
Give academic and class recommendations based on a report conducted by other psychologists and professionals
Attend SEN support groups at schools to provide free consultations to the parents
