  • My child has already been evaluated. Do I need another evaluation?

    Yes. We will review the evaluation that your child has already received as part of our diagnostic evaluation but cannot rely on that report to determine treatment recommendations. Our clinicians need to meet with you and your child directly and make their assessment. An accurate and thorough diagnostic evaluation is the key to recommending the most effective treatment.
