The comprehensive evaluation fees vary depending on the referral question and complexity of the case. Comprehensive evaluations can range from 5-12 hours in total, which includes an intake, test administration, report writing time, and feedback. You and your family will attend an intake session where Dr. Epler will learn more about your current concerns and your child’s early development. Following an intake, Dr. Epler will complete the testing portion of the assessment. Testing will span several hours and will include administration of measures with your child, as well as questionnaires that you will complete related to the referral question. Lastly, Dr. Epler will provide a comprehensive report summarizing information collected during intake and testing, as well as resources and recommendations for your child. This report will be discussed during a feedback session and a copy will be provided at the time of feedback.
