Problem Clarification Consultation as a Response to Referral for Testing: A Means of Initiating Consultation Relationships.
Clark, W. Donald
Problem clarification is described as a process to be engaged in as a means of initiating consultation with school staff who refer children to the psychologist for testing. This process requires that the staff member and psychologist examine the stated reason for referring the child as well as reasons which may not have been included initially. Three questions which should be answered are: 1. What is known about the basic needs of the child? 2. What processes or experiences are required to meet these needs? 3. What procedural steps must be taken and by whom to obtain these processes or experiences? The goal of the consultation is to establish a plan for proceeding and to relate testing to informational needs which may or may not emerge or for which testing may or may not be appropriate. It is presumed that engaging in this process will offer opportunity for the consulting relationship to be further developed and for the traditional referral for testing model of service delivery to be modified drastically.
