  • The child / adult has not shown progress despite the implementation of multiple evidenced based intervention strategies.
  • Child / Adult presents with concerns in any of the following areas:
    • Sensory-motor functions (fine and gross motor)
    • Visuospatial processes (perception and reasoning)

As soon as an appointment is scheduled you will be sent a sign-on request for IntakeQ, a secure communication platform. You will use IntakeQ for all communications and also to complete your intake packet which includes information and forms that must be completed prior to your appointment. Depending on the main concern, you may be e-mailed a rating scale to complete, and if applicable a teacher may also be asked to complete a rating scale as well.
When you arrive for the evaluation, an intake interview will take place. During this interview we would like to hear from you regarding your concerns. After the interview a comprehensive evaluation based upon the referral question will take place. Once the evaluation has been completed, you will be invited back (in a couple of weeks) to receive feedback regarding the results of the evaluation.  At this time you will receive a written report.  This report will provide recommendations and interventions that have a basis in the neuropsychological or educational literature if warrante
