How Do Assessments Help?


Provides A Well Rounded View

Our observations of your child within a variety of settings, helps us form a complete picture of their needs and strengths.


Clarifies Diagnosis

Our team uses a comprehensive range of assessments to build a diagnosis that addresses every area of your child’s life.


Determines Treatment Plan

By reviewing your child’s assessment results, we can determine which treatment options offer the best chance of success.

Gaining A Well-Rounded Perspective

Each piece of the puzzle is critical in capturing the entirety of your child.  Once the majority of the mental health assessment process have been completed, we conduct a verbal Interdisciplinary Review (IDR) to discuss our initial findings, and then review the neuropsychological testing and therapeutic experiences. We then recommend treatment options to you.


The verbal IDR is typically scheduled at the conclusion of your son/daughter’s stay, you will also receive a final IDR report which more fully integrates our assessment findings derived from the interdisciplinary team. At the end of the therapeutic assessment each family is provided a comprehensive IDR which captures both a well fleshed out diagnosis as well as clearly defined recommendations for future treatment.
