Does your child have personal difficulties that are getting in the way of relationships or home, work, or school life? Does your child feel sad, depressed, worried, or anxious more than you would like? Does your child have difficulty getting along with others? Does your child feel lost or struggle to complete daily responsibilities?
A diagnostic evaluation can help clarify why your child is experiencing certain symptoms and aide in developing a treatment plan to improve their life.
What is involved in a diagnostic evaluation?
A diagnostic evaluation involves:
A clinical interview
Standardized measures of anxiety, mood, behavior, or other symptoms from multiple reporters
Review of developmental, medical and school history
