When you reach out to us, here is what you can expect.

  1. Initial call/email– You will talk with our office manager to provide your child’s information and the reasons why you are reaching out. They will schedule a complimentary phone intake with our clinical intake team.
  2. Phone Intake – Our clinical intake team will take the time to get to know your child’s situation in more depth. They will offer their insights as to what could be contributing to your child’s difficulties, and they will provide recommendations on the best course of action. This could include scheduling therapy or an evaluation or executive functioning coaching and/or referring you to other providers for different types of services.

Evaluation

Psychoeducational and neuropsychological evaluations are comprehensive processes, given the complexity of child and adolescent development. At Wolff Child Psychology, we know the only way to fully understand a child or teen is to gather a broad and in-depth range of information from multiple sources, including direct testing with your child or teen, as well as interviewing and collecting data from parents, teachers, and other professionals in your child’s life.

If you schedule an evaluation for your child, you will know the exact dates of testing, who your evaluator is, and the evaluation fee.

Testing typically occurs over two half-days or one school-length day, depending on a number of factors (e.g., your child’s age, how comprehensive the evaluation scope is, your child’s expected fatigue and/or anxiety about testing). Full-day evaluations include an extended break for lunch. For children 6 years and older, we do not expect parents to stay onsite (though you are welcome to), as the days of testing are focused exclusively on your child. If your child is under 6 years of age, please do plan to stay onsite. Your child and the psychologist will work collaboratively throughout the evaluation sessions to complete a range of formal and informal tests, while building in time for adequate breaks and rapport-building.

After your child’s testing sessions, we give ourselves about 2-3 weeks to gather information from multiple other sources, including in-depth interviews with you, your child’s teacher(s), and other professionals in your child’s life (e.g., tutors, occupational and speech/language therapists, pediatricians, etc.). We also request you and your child’s teacher complete a range of clinical questionnaires online.

Once we have collected all of our data, we will meet with you (typically without your child) to review the results, including any diagnoses we ruled in or out, notable strengths or weaknesses across developmental areas, and our educational and treatment recommendations.

Within 2-3 weeks of the feedback session, we will create a comprehensive written report detailing all of the relevant background information, data collected during the evaluation, our diagnostic and clinical conclusions, and our educational and treatment recommendations.

Given how critical it is for a child’s educational plan to fit their needs, we include our active participation in a follow-up school meeting as part of the evaluation process. Meetings can range in format, including IEP/504 Plan eligibility and development, private school accommodation planning, and/or informational sessions with your child’s educational team. Our goal is to support the school in understanding your child’s psychoeducational needs and to contribute toward the development of an effective educational plan.

If we recommend specific types of treatment and intervention for your child, we will provide referrals for those services (and happily connect with the new providers about your child’s case). If appropriate, we may offer options for follow-up psychotherapy and coaching services at Wolff Child Psychology.

Comprehensive Evaluation: $3900-$4800 (depends on type and level of assessment needed)
IQ Testing (WPPSI-IV, WISC-V, or WAIS-IV) or Basic Academic Achievement Testing (WJ-IV or WIAT-IV): $600
IQ and Basic Academic Achievement Testing: $1200

Note: Fees listed here are typical estimates. The actual fee, which would be set when you schedule your appointment, could vary depending on the specific details of your case.

Payments and Payment Plan Options
Wolff Child Psychology accepts cash, checks, and all credit cards. For evaluations, clients can pay the full fee at the initial appointment or in 4 monthly installments. At this time, we do not bill most commercial health insurance companies directly, but can easily provide invoices for services. Often, clients can then be reimbursed by their insurance companies. Flexible Spending Accounts or Health Savings Accounts are accepted.

We now accept Kaiser, Carelon, and Medicaid for certain types of evaluations and services.
