There are many reasons to request a child diagnostic evaluation. A child diagnostic evaluation always answers a question.
Some individuals are facing challenges at school or in relationships and want to know why. Some want to learn more about patterns they or other people see. Sometimes others notices a change in a person’s ability to handle routine tasks or demands that they handled well before. Other people seek out a diagnostic evaluation to fully function at their highest level.
Getting to the answer to these questions can provide peace, help you understand your patterns of functioning, help define treatment goals and approaches, and provide next steps and future directions.
