When a child is not achieving milestones within the age range of that normal variability, a developmental disorder may be present. According to the CDC, about 1 in 6 children in the U.S. have one or more developmental disabilities or other developmental delays.
If you are concerned that your child has a significant delay in his or her cognitive, language, social-emotional, or behavioral development, it is important to have him or her evaluated as soon as possible. Accessing early intervention and support services is vital to help your child make progress and even catch up!
A developmental evaluation involves a parent interview to better understand your concerns and to discuss relevant records and your child’s birth, medical, educational and social history.
One-on-one testing with your child will involve standardized, non-standardized, and play-based measures to identify your child’s strengths and weaknesses. In a feedback session, we will share the evaluation results, discuss targeted and practical intervention strategies for identified areas of need, and answer any questions you have.
