Choosing a professional to evaluate your child is an important decision. Our assessment process is highly individualized to meet the needs of your child and your family. Over the course of several sessions, we strive to identify and understand your primary concerns and then assess your child’s behavioral, emotional, academic, and cognitive functioning.

Sample Evaluation Process

  • Initially, we meet with your family to better understand your concerns about your child’s behavioral, emotional, and/or academic issues. We also ask questions about your child’s developmental history. You are the expert on your child, and the information you provide is critical and valuable to the evaluation process.
  • During the evaluation process, we assess your child’s development using relevant assessments in a one-to-one setting. Measures may assess areas such as cognitive ability, academic achievement, adaptive skill development, behavioral needs, attention and executive functioning, learning and memory, visuospatial skills, language, and social skills.
  • After completing direct testing, we score, analyze, and interpret all test results. These results are then integrated into a comprehensive report, which also includes relevant background information, developmental history, and input from caregivers/service providers in order to give the most accurate picture of your child. Based on this information, we provide individualized recommendations tailored specifically to your child.
  • Finally, we conduct an interactive feedback session with your family to discuss the evaluation results. During this meeting, we review the written report with the goal of helping you better understand your child’s strengths and weaknesses as well as to equip you with a road map of recommended supports and services to help your child succeed.

After the evaluation process has been completed, we conduct an interactive feedback session to review a detailed written report with the evaluation results and individualized recommendations. Our goal is to create a comprehensive report that describes your child’s strengths and needs, addresses your concerns, and provides a treatment plan to help your child achieve his or her potential at home, school, and in the community.
