frequently asked questions

Why do I need an intake?

IntakeThe intake is the first step in our process of working with you. It is a valuable tool in our diagnostic process, and in your understanding of the types of assessments and services we can provide to you.

The initial intake appointment is used to obtain extensive history and background information about the person who is going to be tested.

We also give you important information during the intake. We will explain how testing works.

When working with a child, we explain the process to both the parent(s) and the child. When appropriate we will also meet with the child to understand the child’s perspective on his/her issues and concerns.

Once the intake is completed, we determine what evaluations the individual needs and schedule them.
