For me, an evaluation is about more than an accurate diagnosis. It’s a collaborative and meaningful experience for the whole family. By the end of the process, families will have a better understanding of which strengths to champion, which vulnerabilities to accommodate, and which types of environments will nurture your child’s unique talents and skills and allow them to thrive. Together, we will create a new plan that will best enable your child to reach their potential.
