At the conclusion of the evaluation, a face-to-face meeting is held, at which

- A written comprehensive and integrated assessment report is presented, which
- Identifies the client’s primary strengths and weaknesses
- Includes a formal DSM-V psychological profile identifying the diagnosis for which the client qualifies (if any)
- Outlines specific treatment strategies incorporating the client's strengths and weaknesses, designed to improve his or her functioning and growth
- I offer referrals to other professionals, as indicated.
I also am available to attend school meetings or to meet with other professionals to review and consult regarding the assessment results and treatment recommendations, if desired.
