What should we expect from the evaluation?
You will receive a written report and a personal consultation with the examiner explaining your child’s learning strengths and weakness. Practical recommendations will be given so they may be implemented immediately.
Do you take insurance?
In some cases, insurance may cover some portion of a psycho-educational evaluation. We do not file for the insurance. When you call your insurance company, please ask them if they will cover the cost for a Psycho-Educational Evaluation. The procedure code is CPT 96102.
Do I need a referral to make an appointment?
No. You, as a parent, may request an evaluation.
What are the ages of the individuals we evaluate?
We provide individualized assessments for individuals from age 5 through college age.
What is the first step toward obtaining special education services?
The first step is to arrange for your child to receive an evaluation. The term “evaluation” refers to the total process of gathering and using information to determine whether a child has a disability and the nature and extent of the special education and related services that the child needs.
Are special education services available to very young children?
If your young child, or a young child you know, was born with a condition requiring special care, he or she may need special services. Services to very young children are also covered under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). http://idea.ed.gov/
Through Part H, the Program for Infants and Toddlers with Disabilities, States may make early intervention services available to eligible infants and toddlers (birth through two years). Under the IDEA, States must provide special education and related services to eligible preschool children (ages 3-5). Services for these young children are provided in different ways than are services for school-aged children.
How much does it cost for the services?
The fee for our services varies depending upon the particular needs of your child and the scope of information requested.
