How does the process work? What does the whole process involve? How do I get started?
First, contact me by phone or email. I‘ll get back to you promptly to find out more about your concerns, discuss the testing process, and answer your initial questions confidentially.
1. We set up an initial face-to-face consultation. This is an opportunity to understand the problem that is leading you to seek testing, to exchange information, and to begin the process of gathering the history and data that are needed to fully understand the problem. (If you are seeking testing for your child and do not live near my office, we can do this consutation by phone or email or letter).
2. I gather and review school records, reports on any previous testing, and questionnaires completed by parents and teachers.
3. I schedule interview/testing sessions with the person who is to be tested. Testing usually requires two sessions lasting two to two-and-one-half hours each. Parents usually need not be present at these sessions.
4. Finally, I prepare a detailed written report, which (with your permission) will be sent to the school or your doctor as well as shared with you. A follow up session (face-to-face or by phone) is scheduled to review and discuss findings and recommendations.
