SMART offers assessment resources for teachers and school specialists. In addition to consulting with schools directly for universal screening and individual assessments, SMART provides on-site individualized assessments of children experiencing difficulty in school. Assessments can be scheduled by calling Dr. Rachel Brown at 207-228-8322.
At this time SMART does not conduct third party insurance billing and payment for individual assessments is expected at the time of service. However, SMART consultation fees are very reasonable and help support USM graduate students who are working toward advanced degrees in education and related fields.
These assessments are completed by SMART staff who include advanced school psychology doctoral students as well as licensed psychologists. All assessment work done by doctoral students is closely supervised and reviewed and the quality of the assessment is no different from those conducted in other settings.
