What is involved in an evaluation?
An evaluation typically consists of 3-4 appointments. The first is the parent consultation meeting, which takes approximately one hour. Your child does not need to be at this meeting. The next one to two appointments are direct testing appointments with your child. These are typically scheduled in one or two 3- to 4-hour blocks of time. For children under 6, we ask that parents stay nearby during the appointment. For older children, parents may leave during the testing appointments, but be prepared to pick your child up for lunch, if they are scheduled for a full day appointment. After the final testing session, we will spend 3-6 hours scoring the tests and writing a comprehensive report. The final feedback session is usually scheduled 2-3 weeks after the final testing session. This appointment takes 60 minutes and is when we will review the results of testing and recommendations for the home and school settings.
Can I ask my school to test my child?
What is the difference between the school's testing and an evaluation through Avirett Psychological?
Our testing extends beyond an educational need for testing and assesses your child’s strengths and weaknesses in the home and school settings. We utilize neuropsychological testing to gather complex information regarding how your child’s brain processes information.
