As an educational diagnostician, you know that making a student connection is everything. You also know that each student’s needs are different and so is the way you work with them. Because of this more individualized approach, many schools are now expanding their special education departments resulting in a need for more educational diagnosticians. ProCare Therapy has teamed up with school districts around the country in need of passionate professionals like you. Our goal is to build confidence in children, and we think you would be perfect for the job.
Educational Diagnostician Responsibilities
In any of our educational diagnostician jobs, your responsibilities may vary depending on the day. Primarily, educational diagnosticians work in schools and are a type of special education provider that assists students with learning difficulties. In addition to working directly with the children in need, you will also collaborate with other school professionals and parents on plans to help the student succeed. Working together with other professionals is important because it ensures a complete evaluation of the student. This form of assessment by an educational diagnostician provides a comprehensive treatment plan for each student. Additionally, these professionals have to document students' progress and make any necessary changes to their education program.
Educational Diagnostician Requirements
The most successful educational diagnosticians possess several important attributes. First and foremost, they must have strong communication abilities since they are constantly interacting with students and other school-based professionals. It is also important that they are analytical, organized, and patient. All educational diagnosticians must receive a Master’s Degree of Education where they would then pursue an educational diagnostician certification. Specific requirements change from state to state, but it is required universally that all educational diagnosticians become licensed.
