What is the Purpose of a Consultation?
A consultation is offered to discuss school-related issues and often serves as a first step when parents are unsure if an evaluation is necessary. If a child had been previously evaluated and there are still concerns, parents may request a consultation for a second opinion.
Prior to the consultation, Dr. Jane reviews previous testing, if available, medical and educational reports, and any other background materials helpful to understand the issues. As part of the consultative experience, Dr. Jane offers guidance, finds solutions, and provides recommendations to address school-related concerns.
Testing is not part of the consultation process.
