In keeping with her foundational clinical research background, Dr. Webb Scott continues to follow the guidelines of the scientific and professional literature to inform all of her practices, from the selection and interpretation of assessment tools to the provision of referrals for supports and interventions.
Dr. Webb Scott chose to specialize in the area of assessment given a passion for the detective work of disentangling the various factors that help and hinder a young person in his/her academic, social, emotional, and behavioral functioning in order to guide planning. She is particularly adept at engaging youth in order to minimize anxious and resistant behaviors and to elicit their most representative performances.
