Are your reports “integrated”?

An article in APA’s The School Psychologist discusses psychological/psycho-educational report writing and how to present your results so that they meet the needs of the consumers; ie, parents and teachers.  What do you think?  Does this fit with your practice?

    Some excellent articles on report writing that have been around for a while… and written by Canadian school psychologists.

    A C.L.E.A.R. Approach to Report Writing: A Framework for Improving the Efficacy of Psychoeducational Reports.

    Abstract

    Psychoeducational reports are the primary means for a school psychologist to communicate the results of an assessment. Although reports should be written in the most efficient and reader-friendly manner, this is not always the case. Additionally, problems in report writing have remained relatively consistent for several decades, despite recommendations on how reports should be improved. The focus of the current article is to provide an integrated and easily implemented framework for improving psychoeducational reports based on the evidence and broad recommendations currently available in the literature. Specifically, the C.L.E.A.R. Approach to report writing for practitioners is presented, with practical strategies and examples provided to illustrate the use of the model in a school-based setting.
