In a confidential and comfortable environment, children and their families participate in a thorough interview process to assess and evaluate the nature of the present concerns. A flexible testing battery (the instruments sued for evaluation) is individualized for each child’s unique background and the goals of the assessment. At the conclusion of the evaluation, a feedback session is held with the parents and child to discuss information gathered during testing, overall impressions, and recommendations going forward. A comprehensive written report is also provided for each family.
