“As key players (Smith, 2007) with a distinctive role in the assessment process, educational diagnosticians ‘share an ability to assess and diagnose the learning problems of students’ (p. 1, NCPSE, 2000) with disabilities. The added value that diagnosticians offer, when compared to their counterparts outside the teaching profession, is that they have taught students with disabilities in authentic classroom settings.” Assessment for Effective Intervention Journal
