Dr Vanessa Spiller (July 2020) Infographic: Ability Wheel
This visual tool developed by Dr Spiller Clinical Psychologist is useful to parents, teachers or service providers to summarise a young person’s abilities across the 10 (plus 1) brain domains to share in a clear way accurate information about a young person and their abilities. Key strategies for supporting and accommodating the young person can be added in. This visual tool can’t replace assessment reports but will be helpful for parents and carers to better understand why their young people do the things they do. There is an accompanying video to show how the Ability Wheel can be completed. A blank copy of the tool can be downloaded from the Explained by Brain page on my website at no charge, as is the video 🙂 https://www.jumpstartpsychology.com/Explained-by-Brain-Group.html
