What is an Initial Behavioral Assessment?

The "Initial Behavioral Assessment" appointment is a first visit to discuss the issue(s) that concern you about your child or teen. Before this visit you will be asked to fill out a one-page questionnaire to give us some basic information about your concerns. During the visit your provider will review this information with you to help determine if these concerns are everyday challenges, a passing phase, or a more serious issue. A recommendation will then be made to either treat your child within our practice, or refer him or her to an appropriate mental health provider that can provide further assessment, counseling and treatment.

If your child or teen has been scheduled an "Initial Behavioral Assessment Visit" with one of our providers, please download and print the following and bring the completed questionnaire to your visit.
