What is involved in the assessment process?

 

Of utmost importance is ensuring that your child feels

comfortable and relaxed in the testing situation, so that the

experience is a positive one for him or her. You can feel

secure knowing that he or she will be welcomed into a safe,

warm, and encouraging environment.  

 

The assessment process includes:

 

-  An initial free consultation by telephone or email to answer your questions

-  A 90-minute intake interview with you to discuss the issues in depth, as well as review your child's history

-  A total of 6 to 8 hours of one-on-one testing, broken up into several sessions 

-  You and your child's teachers will be asked to complete various questionnaires

-  Scoring, analysis, and interpretation of test results

-  An in-depth 2-hour feedback meeting to present results, explain conclusions, offer recommendations, and 

   answer your questions

-  Referrals to community resources as needed

-  Provision of relevant reading material as well as reference lists of recommended documentation and    

   reputable websites, as needed 

-  A very detailed and comprehensive written report provided to you and forwarded to your child's doctor or

   relevant professionals (with your consent)

 

Including the written report preparation time, the entire comprehensive assessment process takes an average of approximately 25 hours to complete.
