Educational Diagnostician

Educational Diagnosticians are a type of special education teacher who assesses, diagnoses and work with children with learning problems. These professionals operate under a number of titles. They may be called a learning consultant, or learning disabilities teacher, but their duties are the same. They work as part of a team of administrators to advise and determine appropriate learning strategies for struggling learners. This team usually includes school counselors, psychologists, and district social workers operating in conjunction with the parents. The goal is to evaluate the student from every angle to get a complete picture of why and how the child is under performing. Their solutions depend on student and campus environmental factors and the district’s resources, but may as simple as moving a child’s desk, all the way to modifying test conditions or recommending remedial classes, special education programs or tutoring

Duties Include:

  • Keep up with state and federal regulations for special education programs
  • Receive student recommendations from teachers and perform evaluation
  • Understand and select testing and assessment tools
  • Evaluate test results and communicate the findings to appropriate people
  • Review and document student progress from teachers, parents and administrators, as well as evaluations obtained through one-on-one interviews and observatory meetings
  • Understand district resources and produce individual plans for student success
  • Act as a case manager and ombudsman between teachers, parents, the student, and sometimes community organizations
