A Comprehensive Evaluation includes an evaluation of various parent/teacher assessment forms, review of past records, parent interview, child evaluation (in person/video) and, in some cases, IEP/504 plans and/or discussion with outside treatment professionals and/or school personnel.
The Comprehensive Report is an excellent way to provide detailed information to other treating professionals and/or school personnel working with children.
Comprehensive Evaluation appointments are 1.5 hours in length. Additional time is spent evaluating multiple parent/teacher assessment forms, past records and developing the Comprehensive Report.
The Comprehensive Report consists of:
- Summary of relevant history
- Child evaluation results
- Explanation of a child’s Functional Emotional Developmental Capacities (FEDCs) from setting to setting
- Summary of potential causes, precipitating and maintaining factors
- Diagnosis (if applicable)
- Specific recommendations for home/school/therapeutic interventions
- Suggested approach to treatment
