Our Executive Skills Coaching Evaluation Process


The Bylund Clinic’s process for systematic assessment for effective goal setting is outlined in the table below.

50-minute Consultation Meeting

Services
Description

Parent Intake Interview

(30 to 40 minutes)

Intake screener is completed with the educational therapist and parent to gather information about presenting concerns

Student Meet/Greet

(10 to 20 minutes)

Our Educational therapist meets with the student to build rapport and gather initial observations



Intervention Cycle

Services
Description

8 Session Intervention

(50 minutes, 1 time per week for 8 weeks)

OR

16 Session Intervention

(25 minutes 2 times per week)

Our education therapist package includes 8 sessions of targeted interventions based on assessed needs, S.M.A.R.T goals, and education therapist expertise. In other words, targeted treatment goals that are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound.

During the initial session, benchmark educational therapists gather baseline data for the S.M.A.R.T goal(s). To establish baseline data to gather progress against, the education therapist may use formative assessment data, naturally occurring data (e.g., homework completion, assignment, test grades, etc.), checklists, or direct behavior ratings (i.e., Likert scales), etc.

The Bylund Clinic utilizes evidence-based interventions and research-based strategies to support the client’s academic skill development and school performance.

Post Intervention Assessment and Consultation
Following 8 to 16 sessions of intervention, the education therapist will measure the client’s progress against S.M.A.R.T. goals using the same measures as used at baseline. The education therapist will then meet with the client and/or parent to discuss their progress during a 45-minute consultation call (by phone, Zoom, Google Meets, or another remote platform).
Recommen-dations
Recommendations
Based on the client’s goal progress, the education therapist will make recommendations to support their continued development and flourishing.

Testimonials


What people say about us


"Danielle was so supportive during the whole process. Her explanations never felt too high level for us. With the understanding the information we were receiving was troubling, Danielle was thorough about how she came about that conclusion. Her demeanor and mannerisms over Zoom for our meetings were always professional. She assured us that if we had additional questions after processing the information she was happy to follow-up with us or answer an email. The entire experience made us feel at ease with something that was daunting and already upsetting, the IEP process. Having Danielle there felt less like us vs. them with the school, it was a more collaborative process with the new information."


Feedback from an Assessment client

"Thank you so much for your time, dedication and for making my daughter feel comfortable and cared for! From the beginning to end we had our questions answered and it was obvious that you were gathering information from multiple places to ensure that you had what you needed for the assessment. I’m so grateful to have this information so we can help my daughter get the support she needs!"


Feedback from an Assessment client

"Dr. Bylund was an ideal evaluator for my son. He is low-key so he put my son at ease. But he is kind, intelligent, professional, and knowledgeable, and an excellent communicator. He took his time with my son for the evaluation and with me in explaining his impressions. He made himself available to the school district and explained his findings in an expert but collegial manner. We had to wait a long time for our appointment but he was worth the wait. We could not have asked for a better doctor! We are so thankful we found him!"


Feedback from an Assessment client

"Very positive experience, our daughter felt good about doing the testing and she was comfortable during the whole process. The report was actionable, we got the conclusive information we need now to take action to help our daughter early, and we are now working to put it into practice.  Thank you!"


Feedback from an Assessment client

"SarahBeth was great and so knowledgeable!"


Feedback from an Assessment client
"100% of recent clients would recommend the Bylund Clinic to friends and family"

Feedback from an Assessment client
"The Initial Evaluation Done By The School District Did Not Accurately Reflect The Struggles My Daughter Faces Daily. SaraBeth's Report Was Very Comprehensive, And We Finally Felt Like Our Child Was Seen And Understood. Reading Through Each Page, We Felt That The Report Truly Represented Our Child. SaraBeth Attended My Daughter's IEP Meeting And Presented The Report In A Way That All Team Members Could Understand, And The District Accepted Her Findings. This Secured Special Education Services For My Daughter. She Also Recommended A Suitable Placement Where She Could Get The Support She Needs To Access Her Education, Which The District Ultimately Agreed To Fund. I Cannot Recommend The Bylund Clinic Highly Enough. It's Very Difficult To Talk About Such Intimate Details About Your Child, But They Made The Process As Easy As Possible And Showed Respect From Beginning To End. The Evaluation They Did Was Instrumental In Securing The Support She Needs, And Also In Highlighting Her Areas Of Strength. SaraBeth's Professionalism, Knowledge, And Passion For Children Is Truly Amazing. Thank You For Changing The Trajectory Of My Daughter's Future, The Bylund Clinic!"

 IEE Client of SaraBeth Bavin
"Having A Professional That Was Knowledgeable, Able To Explain The Evidence Derived From Thorough Assessments, And Be A Diplomatic And Yet Firm Voice Advocating At The IEP Meeting For What My Student Needed To Access Her Education Was Essential. It Really Encouraged The School Members On The IEP Team To Truly Understand, Responsibly Discuss And Make Informed And Appropriate Decisions To Support My Child's Educational Journey."
