Your appointment

Before your first appointment, you will receive a call from our intake staff. They will ask your permission to contact other people in the community who know your child to gather any previous reports or information that will help us understand your child's assessment needs.

You will also receive some forms in the mail to complete and sign and return to us to help us gather information.

You may have one or more appointments as part of your child's assessment. Sometimes your appointments may be booked at one of our partner sites that may be closer to your community.

Our booking clerks will call you to book your child's appointment.
