Prior to treatment, an initial intake assessment is required. This comprehensive initial evaluation will take 60-90 minutes and will involve a clinical interview with parents and the child (depending on age), self- and parent-report rating skills, and information obtained from school professionals and other relevant sources (pediatrician, psychiatrist etc.). We will identify the nature of the presenting difficulties and make appropriate treatment recommendations.
Sometimes a more thorough and specified evaluation is necessary. Dr. Bruno will refer to appropriate professionals if necessary. If you are looking for evaluations for Autism or Selective Mutism please click below.
