Following the initial phone consultation, all new clients and their parents/significant others are seen by our founder, Susan P. Paul for a one hour consultation in our Conshohocken office. The purpose of the consultation:
- Determine if a formal assessment is warranted
- Provide clients with simple strategies they can use immediately
- Determine which CI associate would potentially work best within the context of their daily lives the client should services continues
Our comprehensive evaluations are individualized and include interviewing the client and other team members, review of past history and any other written reports, direct observation in a variety of contexts, as necessary, and standardized and non-standardized assessments. We at Communication Imaging believe that one needs a relationship with a client prior to providing direct, standardized measures. Therefore, our initial sessions are both diagnostic and therapeutic in nature. A client will not be billed for the evaluation until the report is completed and in the client’s possession.
