The evaluation process begins with an initial one hour parent consultation, where both parents should attend, if possible.
This initial consultation will be followed by a one hour evaluation with the child.
An additional appointment with the parents or the child may be required if the evaluation is more complex.
The evaluation will conclude with a reporting conference with the parents to discuss findings and recommendations.
As part of the evaluation process, records will be reviewed and there may be collaboration with other professionals that are providing care for the child.
If extensive collaboration is required, an additional fee may be incurred.
If testing or medical records are available for review, please try to get these to the office prior to the initial appointment via fax or mail.
For high school students, a 90-minute appointment will be scheduled, where time is spent both with the teen and the parent(s).
At the end of the appointment, treatment recommendations will be made. However, depending on the complexity of the evaluation, an additional appointment may be required to make treatment recommendations.
Adult patients will be seen for a one hour consultation appointment.
