At the end of this appointment, you will receive written notes about your visit and our initial recommendations and diagnosis. Your treatment plan may include:

  • Recommendations for behavioral management
  • Medication recommendations
  • Referral to genetics
  • Referral to other specialists or therapists
  • Recommendations for medical equipment

Our team will coordinate your child’s care and make adjustments to the treatment plan as needed.

follow-up care

We will want to see your child regularly to see how he or she is responding to the treatment plan and to recommend additional therapy or testing if needed. We will schedule follow-up appointments at the end of each visit. These appointments usually take 30-45 minutes.
