Our evaluation process requires three appointments. Evaluations are typically scheduled within 3-6 months or possibly sooner.

2. Testing Appointment – The psychologist and clinician work directly with the child, with the parent present. This appointment can take 2-4 hours.

3. Feedback Appointment – Go over the results and receive a copy of the report. The child should not attend this appointment. This appointment can take 1-2 hours.
