Treatments

A comprehensive assessment of a child’s disability or a mental health includes the following:

  • A discussion with parents addressing a child’s developmental history, temperament,relationships with friends and family, medical history, interests, abilities, and any prior treatment.It is important to get a picture of the child’s current situation, for example:has he or she changed schools recently, has there been an illness in the family, or a change with an impact on the child’s daily life.
  • An interaction with the child about his or her experiences, as well as testing and behavioral observations, if needed.
  • Information gathering from parents, such as standardized tests, reports on behavior,capabilities, and difficulties.
  • Assessment results may suggest that a child’s behavior is related to changes or stresses at home or school; or is the result of a disorder for which treatment would be recommended.
