​​Interdisciplinary team evaluations may include the following disciplines: psychology, occupational therapy, speech/language pathology, developmental behavioral pediatrics, child psychiatry, and nursing. 
These evaluations provide diagnostic clarification and recommendations for treatment. Families seeking evaluations generally request an initial diagnosis, second opinion, recommendations for an Individualized Educational Plan (IEP), or follow-up treatment recommendations.
 
Psychological Evaluations:
Psychological evaluations are typically performed for purposes of diagnostic clarification, and may include intellectual and cognitive assessment, academic assessment, social/emotional assessment, functional assessment of behavior, and evaluation of adaptive behavior and self-care functioning.
 
Speech/Language Evaluations:
Speech/language assessments include evaluation of receptive and expressive language functioning, social language and oral-motor functioning.

 

A variety of therapy services are available through the clinic. They include speech therapy, occupational therapy, individual psychotherapy, family therapy, group therapy, supportive counseling, parent guidance, and behavioral therapies.
