STEP 2

Look Under the Hood

An educational psychologist and POINT & FOCUS team members will conduct a thorough assessment with intellectual and emotional testing to identify strengths, weaknesses, and learning styles. The full program will require all participating family members (typically the student and a parent or caretaker) to commit to doing their best by staying focused and on point until completion.
