The Children’s Center for Psychiatry, Psychology and Related Services is pleased to again offer psychological evaluations to the community. To best serve the need of our clients we will be offering both in person appointments or remote video conferencing to get a better understanding of your child, their strengths and weaknesses, and what accommodations and interventions they would benefit from.
We are able provide our typical in person evaluations with procedures and materials to ensure safety during COVID-19 concerns. Additionally, while the evaluation process is typically a hands-on experience and the assessment tools require face-to-face interactions, we have also made adaptations to provide remote evaluations via video appointments.
As part of the evaluations we are conducting now, we will take the following steps:
- Meet with parents via video conferencing and collect information so we can learn about your child’s emotional, behavioral, and social functioning.
- Meet with the child via video conferencing to assess if they would be a good fit for a remote evaluation. If so, we will proceed with evaluating cognitive and academic abilities and social and emotional functioning via video conferencing. We will also be able to assess aspects of attention, impulsivity, language, and memory. We may decide that additional in person testing will be helpful.
- Collect information from your child’s teacher through teacher rating forms and interviews.
- Collect information from your child’s medical and school records if needed.
This information will help us gain a better understanding of your child and their unique needs and will allow us to provide consultation and recommendations to support your child both at the home and at school environments.
Additionally, we can provide psychological evaluations to help with diagnosis of mental health concerns and to assist with treatment planning.
Schedule a psychological evaluation for your child.
