Where Do You Take Your Kid To Be Evaluated? | #T5Tue

Last #T5Tue, I talked about the difference between a psychoeducational and a Neuropsychological evaluation.

But where do you go? Here are a few suggestions of where you can start -  

What you NEED to keep in mind when searching for an evaluation site: 

  • Do they accept insurance? Or the medicaid waiver.
    • If they don't - will they work with you so that you can submit bill to your insurance.
  • Will they be able to provide specific suggestions?
  • Will the doctor be willing to testify (if you have to go to an impartial hearing)?
  • Ask how they will structure the written evaluation (and roughly how many pages).
