What does the evaluation process look like?
- We begin with a free consultation (usually over the phone) to make sure that an evaluation is the right next step for your child.
- Our evaluation uses a multidimensional approach. We’ll target ADHD, but also screen for ODD, mood disorders, and learning issues to ensure an accurate diagnosis. But we don’t stop there, to create a more complete understanding, we will also explore your child’s strengths and achievements, and create a plan for a successful future.
- Our experts then create an in depth report that gets you answers quickly, usually within about a week. This includes all assessment results, diagnosis (if appropriate), and recommendations for success. This report will be presented in a personal follow up appointment to ensure you understand the results, and have time to ask questions.
- Finally, we’re here to help moving forward in whichever way feels right for you. The report is tailored to your child, and is an easy to read format to help at schools, with pediatricians, or therapists. We also have several therapists in office to begin therapy specifically for assisting children with ADHD.
