Your Visit
 

We ask that families have their primary care doctor fax us a referral form.
Referral form
(PDF format) or Referral form (Word document)

When we receive the referral, we will mail a packet for parents to complete that includes:

  1. New patient parent questionnaire
  2. Teacher questionnaire: Age 4 and younger  |  Age 5 and older
  3. Child behavior checklist, one form for parents, one form for teachers
  4. Behavioral pediatrics feeding assessment
  5. Child sleep habits questionnaire

You and your child's teacher (if applicable) should complete the requested forms and return them to the Center for Child Development at least two weeks before your appointment. Clear and accurate information that arrives early leads to better evaluations.

Include your child's IEP (individualized Education Plan) or IFSP (Individual Family Service Plan) in the pre-appointment packet you mail to us.

Preparing for your Visit

Appointments with your medical providers last for about 1 hour. Appointments with the psychologists will last 4 to 6 hours. It is important that your child gets a good night's sleep and eats breakfast on the day of the appointment.

Appointment Day
It is important to arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment for paperwork. If you arrive 30 minutes or more after your appointment time, your child will not be seen and must call the appointment phone to reschedule.

Bring the following items to your appointment:

  • Insurance cards
  • Copies of medical information
  • Co-pay
  • Pen and paper for note-taking
  • Stroller (if needed)
