A psychiatrist and psychologist then review all of the test and questionnaire findings, and review all background documentation provided, including the Psychoeducational Assessment report and previous report cards. Based on this review, they then consider all treatment options—and the combination of those options—to determine how best to optimize functioning for you or your child.
If the psychiatrist decides that a specific medication treatment at a specific dose is optimal, this information will be relayed to you and to your doctor. The psychiatrist and the physicians on our team will work collaboratively with your physician for up to two years to support optimal functioning around medication.
We will also make recommendations at the end of the Treatment Optimization Assessment about other treatments— like therapy, coaching or tutoring—since combined treatments work best, tailored specifically for you or your child based on our findings. Our recommendations will be written in a report that you and your family physician or pediatrician will receive.
At the end of this process, you will meet with the psychiatrist who will explain the findings and our suggestions for boosting success. This session will again be done over secure video, from the safety, convenience and privacy of your home.
