What can I expect at my first session?
As a parent what do you need to know.
The first session involves an initial intake which is with the parents only. It would be beneficial before this session to bring any information you may think may be helpful to provide the psychologist such as school report cards, or any other previous reports from other specialists. The psychologist will gather a developmental history and identify the presenting issues you are concerned about with your child. We will then formulate a treatment plan on how to best provide therapy to your child and your family.
