What’s really going on?

Are your child’s difficulties at home and school caused by learning differences, ADHD, anxiety, depression or all of the above? Do social challenges indicate that your child is on the autism spectrum or are they just a typical delay in maturation? Often, an interplay of several issues overlaps and interferes with your child’s wellbeing, making it confusing and frustrating to figure out how to help. A child who is struggling in school, for example, will have limited success with academic tutoring if the root of the problem is actually undiagnosed inattention and/or anxiety issues.

Why evaluate?

During a CHC evaluation, we really get to know the ins and outs of your child. An expert team of professionals works carefully with you and your child, talking and listening. Then the team collaborates and recommends a plan of action that works best for your family. All specialists on your team are in one building, so they can easily confer or speak with one another about your child.

  • Is my concern warranted?

    Whether your child receives a clinical diagnosis or not, our specialists will offer coaching and strategies to manage behavioral or educational concerns.
  • What kind of help is right for my child?

    Avoid spending time and money on professional help before understanding the root causes at the core of your child’s issues. Then you can determine the best course of action.
  • Does my child need accommodations?

    Our independent evaluations are a first step to figuring out whether special services or accommodations at school are necessary for your child’s academic success.
  • What are the costs for evaluation?

    It is important to us that you receive the services you need. Find out about costs, sliding scale and financial aid arrangements.
