The Diagnostic Program is an intense, fast-paced program. It is designed to be a 45-day period of assessment during which the child’s strengths and needs are evaluated in detail.
A team of consultants is assembled with the intent of designing a protocol specific to the child’s needs. Areas of interest may include intelligence testing, achievement testing, vocational testing, and assessments related to mental health functioning. A wide variety of resources are available and are used to make the assessment well-rounded and thorough.
The end result is a detailed report that makes recommendations regarding educational and treatment concerns. The focus is on developing specific interventions that can be implemented to assist the child in being successful.
