What Is This Clinic? What Can I Expect?
|Psychologists, Dr. Diane C. Marti and Dr. Ariadne Schemm have teamed up with Therapy Works, a company that provides Occupational and Speech Diagnostic and therapy services, to provide an integrated assessment involving speech, occupational, neurodevelopmental diagnostics within a family-centered process. The goal is to provide families of children ages 2-14 years with a single location and a combined approach to provide a streamlined diagnostic process to access early intervention services and/or another referral.
Children who have not had an Occupational, Developmental, or Speech Assessment in the past year. In addition, they have not received speech or therapy services in the past year. Referrals typically come the school, pediatrician or other concerned individual due developmental delays.
|After you respond to our clinic via email, you will be contacted by one of our clinical assistants for scheduling. The evaluation will occur on Monday over a two-week period. On week 1, your family will be evaluated by the Psychologist, OT and Speech clinicians within an initial joint interview. Your child will then be evaluated by the OT and Speech clinicians on week 1. We expect this appointment to last approximately 3-hours.
After this initial week, we will send out assessments for parents and teacher/daycare providers to complete via e-mail.
You and your child will then meet on week 2 with the psychologist for an additional one-hour appointment to review assessments and discuss next steps.
