A parent, legal guardian or child over the age of 14 may refer or be referred for an evaluation to determine the most appropriate level of behavioral treatment needed. All clients will go through a screening session to gather their information, usually by phone. If deemed appropriate through the screening process, the client will be scheduled for a Biopsychosocial Evaluation to be completed with a Licensed Mental Health Professional (i.e., Licensed Psychologist).

Behavioral therapy can assist in improving your child’s ability to function at their highest capacity in a learning environment.
