A consultation at The Yellin Center can be a good first step for parents or older students who are not certain that a complete assessment is necessary but are seeking a new perspective regarding school or learning difficulties. A consultation includes a face-to-face meeting with Dr. Yellin to discuss a student's situation. Dr. Yellin will offer guidance and recommendations for appropriate care. He will conduct an advance review of previous testing, medical history, school reports and other background materials where indicated. Significantly, a consultation typically does not include testing or assessment.
Dr. Yellin also routinely works with families whose children were assessed elsewhere and who are confused about what it all means and what to do next. Prior to meeting with you, Dr. Yellin will review your child’s assessment report and other relevant materials. At your meeting, he will be able to answer your questions about the report and provide guidance about how best to proceed.
