At Elevated Insights Assessment, you can expect to meet with a developmental expert who will work with you and your child in three phases over the course of the evaluation.
Phase 1: Intake Session (1-1.5 hours long)
The first appointment is considered an intake appointment, where your clinician will meet with you child to obtain a full developmental history and rich understanding of current concerns.
Phase 2: Direct Testing (Several hours long)
The second phase of the evaluation process involves direct assessment. During this phase, your clinician will use clinical observation, a combination of selected evidence-based tests, and consultation with other providers, (such as teachers, school psychologists, therapists, physicians, etc.), to gather additional information related to your child’s functioning. You can expect your child to be scheduled for one to three testing sessions, depending on the nature of the assessment, with appointments usually lasting several hours.
Phase 3: Feedback Session (1 hour long)
The third and final phase of the testing process includes the feedback session. During this phase, you will meet with your clinician and thoroughly review test results. If your child receives a formal diagnosis, your clinician will discuss the implications of diagnosis and related considerations. During the feedback, your clinician will also make recommendations for moving forward and discuss evidence-based interventions we believe to be useful in increasing your child’s chance of success across settings. We believe highlighting cognitive and emotional strengths to be a critical component in helping further guide interventions. At this time, we will also help families connect with services, understand eligibility for school accommodations, and secure the best resources for meeting your child’s needs.
Our goal at the time of feedback is simple. We want our families to leave feeling empowered with a comprehensive understanding of their child’s areas of strength and areas in need of support, while feeling hopeful and excited for the future.
