The initial assessment is comprised of: an interview with the parent to discuss their child’s strengths, deficits, behavioral concerns, two indirect assessments, direct observation of your child in the home setting (school and/or after-school program if the consultation will be delivered in other settings), assessments (pre-academic, language, play and social skills, self-help, and behavioral), and baseline data.
