Feedback meeting

We typically schedule a feedback meeting with parents and adolescents to discuss the results a week or two after the evaluation. In addition, we discuss recommendations for interventions and support services. Feedback covers:

  • Performance in various areas of functioning
  • Overall strengths and weaknesses
  • Results of behavior and symptom checklists completed by parents, teachers (for elementary school students), and the students themselves.
  • Diagnoses (if appropriate)


A written report is mailed to the parent, guardian, or patient (if age 18 or older) containing test results and recommendations.

Follow-up services

  • Consultation, for example a review of Individual Educational Plans
  • Social skills groups
  • Parent information and support groups
  • Periodic re-evaluations, as needed
