Psychological Evaluation

The first line of defence in diagnosing and treating a mental health condition – that’s what psychological evaluation can be thought of.

How can I prepare my child for his first therapy visit?

We know that your child may feel anxious about their visit, so we will do everything we can to help him to feel comfortable from the moment he arrives. Our therapy areas are child-friendly--bright, colorful spaces filled with toys and games. If your child is young, telling him that there will be “no ouchies” or “boo boos” may help. For an older child, you might explain that there will be no shots.

How long will my child be seen for therapy?

The purpose of therapy is to help your child become as independent as possible in normal daily activities. The time varies depending on your child’s condition, her age and a wide range of other factors. Soon after your child starts therapy, your therapist will talk with you about how many therapy sessions she will need, and for how long therapy will last.

Do I need to be present for my child’s therapy session?

A parent or legal guardian must be present at your child’s initial therapy evaluation; this is important so that you can give consent for your child to be treated. Being present at the evaluation will give the therapist a chance to speak with you about your concerns and goals for your child. The most important thing you can do for your child is to make sure a parent or caregiver attends every therapy session, even if your child is a teenager. One of our primary goals is to give your entire family skills and knowledge to help your child gain the greatest benefit from therapy.
