Psycho-educational evaluators and school staff are supposed to be on the same side. We all want to know what is happening with a student so that we can help him or her to succeed in school. However, depending on our respective disciplines, and our experience of the student, we might have different views of the information intended to support the student's optimal performance. In this workshop we will present the issues and difficulties that can arise from the dialogue between evaluators and school folks. We will also suggest methods to make the communication even better.
