Answering Your Key Questions
Assessments are authorized and funded by the Regional Center.
Whether you’re concerned about 1 specific area of your child’s development or you have broader concerns, we can help you get the information you need. You will receive a general overview of the primary domains of development (gross motor, fine motor, cognition, language/communication, self-help skills, social-emotional development, and coping behavior.)
The assessment takes about 2 hours to complete and involves you and your child’s participation. The first half of the evaluation is play-based as the assessors prompt your child through several fun activities. The second half consists of parent-directed questions about your child’s development. The assessors review the results with the parents at the end of the assessment.
We send the evaluation results to the Regional Center. Your child’s assigned Service Coordinator will determine your child’s eligibility for early start services and coordinate any ongoing therapeutic needs to help your child’s development.
