An Overview of beginning the treatment process for both Adults and Children
1. Intake Phone Call
A 15-20 minute phone call with the Intake Coordinator is typically the first step of the process for a new client. There is no charge for this phone call and is intended to review your questions and to determine if a consultation appointment may be helpful. We are very open specific about our services, including the cost. We know cost is always an important concern. Our services may reimburse you for some of what we do, but we planned the Center with the self-paying consumer in mind.
2. Clinical Consultation
A 90 minute session with an Affinity Center therapist is the beginning of the diagnostic and/or treatment process. As preparation for this appointment you may be asked to complete some home questionnaires to better prepare us for your visit. This appointment focuses on getting to know you and/or you and your child and determining the most helpful next step. For example, is a comprehensive evaluation indicated? What specific types of treatment would be most beneficial for you?
3. Comprehensive Team Evaluation
If an evaluation is recommended after the initial consultation appointment, a plan is developed with the Affinity Center therapist to individualize that evaluation. Components of it may include: psychological and/or cognitive and educational testing, a speech/language assessment, gathering information from significant individuals in your life, meeting with school personnel, a comprehensive health review, and a session with one of the Affinity Center physicians. Following the assessment, the Affinity team collaborates to review the diagnostic information, impressions, and treatment recommendations. This information is then shared with you in a treatment planning session.
