Why should I have my child evaluated by a school psychologist in a private practice instead of by the one at my child’s school?
The evaluation procedures used by either the school psychologist at your child’s school or by
one in a private practice are essentially the same. We are required to inform you that a wide
range of assessment services are available to your child free of charge through the public
school system. However, you benefit from our experience and flexibility when scheduling
appointments. We are committed to evaluating your child’s unique strengths, weaknesses, and
learning styles, while maintaining the highest level of integrity and empathy. Our office is a
family friendly environment, and allows for adequate time and opportunity to meet with you
given your scheduling needs. We are often able to meet with your child more quickly, and can
ascertain his or her abilities with fewer time restrictions, as we offer weekend appointments.
