The intake focuses on discussing what brought you in, current concerns, and gathering relevant background information, such as mental health, medical events and history, and academic/occupational functioning. Prior to the appointment, any relevant additional records should be faxed over including any previous evaluation reports, school records or reports, accommodations or modifications, and other medical records. Prior to the appointment, we may also ask to consult with the referring provider. Such individuals may include therapist, school psychologist or counselor, case manager, psychiatrist, primary care physician, etc. Note: A consent to release form will need to be completed for each individual. Continually, an additional informant, such as a parent, spouse or significant other will also be asked to complete an additional set of questionnaires. Even for patients over the age of 18, having an additional informant is often crucial to the evaluation and is always beneficial.
