What should I expect during my child’s evaluation?
During the initial evaluation, your therapist will spend some time getting to know your child and assessing his/her abilities. This includes discussing concerns with the child’s caregiver, observing and interacting with the child, and performing standardized assessments. Evaluations last approximately one hour. At the end of the appointment, your therapist will review her findings with you and determine the best plan of care. After the evaluation, you will receive a detailed report of findings and recommendations.
Should I attend my child’s therapy session?
As a parent, you play an important role in your child’s development and progress. We encourage parents to attend sessions when possible. If you are unable to attend the sessions, or if your child performs better without an audience, your therapist will provide ample time at the end of each session to discuss your child’s performance and provide suggestions and activities for carryover at home.
