How Testing Works

First, we’ll introduce ourselves on the phone. If it’s a good fit, we’ll schedule the intake appointment. You will fill out paperwork online. Then you will gather school, medical, and mental health records to bring to our first meeting. After that, we can complete the assessments in person. Once those are finished, we’ll hold a feedback meeting to review the results and recommendations for supports and interventions.
