Evaluations

An evaluation is the first step in determining whether a child has delays/concerns that warrant any therapy. Our professional and experienced evaluators, through play techniques, will determine to what extent your child may be delayed. A report will be generated as a result of the evaluation. The report will show strengths and weaknesses and will show at what developmental levels your child is performing. Recommendations will also be made at this time.

If it is determined that your child would benefit from these programs and services, the age of your child would determine the process of how services are started.

Early Intervention (0-3)

If your child is between the ages of 0-3, he/she would fall under the Early Intervention Program. A Early Intervention Service Coordinator would be assigned to you and your child to help get services started accordingly and to follow your child's progress.

C.P.S.E. (3-5)

If your child is between the ages of 3-5, he/she would fall under the Committee on Preschool Special Education program. This process is governed by the school district in which the child resides. The Chairperson of that school's committee will help get the process started by setting up an evaluation.

We would be happy to assist you with getting your child an evaluation. Please contact Lynn at (518) 782-1178 or Lynn@achievements.org
