Diagnostic Evaluations

Parents want answers right away from qualifies professionals when they are concerned with their child’s development. Through the Child Assessment Program at The Watson Institute, recognized experts in the field attempt to address the family’s questions as soon as possible and help them connect with any needed service agencies.

The results and conclusions of the evaluation are reviewed with the family during the child’s visit. A detailed written report is provided within one week of the initial visit.

With the family’s permission, the report can also be forwarded to the appropriate primary care physician as well as other service providers. Because the reports are written according to service providers standards, the need for repeated testing can be avoided, reducing the delay in obtaining treatment, if necessary.

Insurance often covers the costs of a child’s assessment. Families can work with Watson’s intake coordinator to determine the extent of coverage provided by their insurance carrier.
