Educational diagnosticians share an ability to assess and diagnose the learning problems of students. They are usually part of a multidisciplinary team of professionals who utilize their skills and areas of expertise to make the best decisions to place students with learning problems. They are also key support personnel who counsel the children and consult with the child's teachers, parents, and others on the child’s progress.
