A master’s-prepared clinician will greet you upon your arrival and ask you to complete some preliminary paperwork. You and your child will then meet the clinician. After the assessment, the assessment and referral staff will consult with you and make a recommendation for the appropriate level of care.
Every child and situation is unique, making every assessment unique. An assessment typically takes one to two hours depending on the concerns being addressed. Your input in your child’s assessment is a critical piece of the process. Please make arrangements so you can be present for the entire evaluation.
ITEMS TO BRING TO AN ASSESSMENT
- Current insurance information
- Documentation from school, service providers or any other assessment related to the concerns you have about your child
- Your child’s current and recent medications
- Contact information for your child’s primary care physician or any other clinician providing services to your child
