Comprehensive Evaluation

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
