Diagnostic Evaluation

The Medical Educational Therapeutic Evaluation Team draws from the other teams within SERESC to comprise a specialized interdisciplinary team that responds to the needs of students with complex challenges and diagnoses.

Service Overview

The METE Team offers evaluations, consultation, and professional development. The team for each individual case varies based on which service providers have the skills needed to answer specific evaluation questions and concerns. Reports offer a single set of integrated impressions and recommendations that are designed to be readily implemented. These services are provided directly to districts and designed to support the student, school team, and family.

Areas of expertise include: Speech, Occupational and Physical Therapy, Vision Services, Special Education, School Psychology, Orientation and Mobility, and others.

METE Services

Comprehensive Evaluations

Each evaluation is designed based on the unique questions from the school district and family and provided where the student learns and lives. Recommendations can support development and prioritization of IEP goals and services, improve implementation of interventions, and provide an opportunity to reconsider existing plans.

Areas of Practice & Consultation

Development, cognitive ability, academic skills, communication development, augmentative and alternative communication (AAC), functional vision, fine motor, gross motor, and sensory processing. METE team members specialize in students with complex medical disabilities, genetic and metabolic disorders, visual impairments, and movement disorders.

“SERESC is always very responsive and provides amazing individuals to work with our students, parents, teams and administrators. The level of expertise from providers and consultants from SERESC is one that is hard to match from other organizations.”
