Answers to some of the most common questions parents have asked us over the years
How much does the evaluation cost?
The assessment cost $795 and includes up to a 2 hour testing appointment. Our office will send the report directly to Harker School after you provide permission.
How long will the assessment take?
Most children take between 60-90 minutes to complete the evaluation. We offer a 2-hour appointment time so we can take breaks as needed.
How do I prepare my child for the assessment?
There is nothing you can do, or should do, to "coach" or prepare your child for the assessment. The purpose of the examination is to assess each child's abilities without preparation. We encourage you not to put any pressure on your child about his or her test performance prior to the appointment. Your child should not prepare or study for the evaluation. Please be aware that prior exposure to test materials, preparation exercises and questions will invalidate the results.
What do I say to my child about the appointment?
You may tell your child that they will be doing some fun and interesting activities during the appointment, and you can encourage them by telling them, "just do your best". Avoid telling your child that it is a play date as this may affect their performance on the assessment. I will work with your child to keep them engaged and provide breaks as needed.
What if my child is sick on the day of the evaluation?
If your child is sick on the day of the appointment or has been sick 14 days prior to the appointment, please call our office to reschedule. We will do everything possible to find another opening for your child, as soon as our schedule permits.
What payment methods does your office accept?
All major credit cards.
Where can I wait during the testing session?
We prefer to have only one parent can come with the child. We will meet together with your child at the beginning of the appointment to make sure your child feels comfortable working with me. During the testing process you will be able to wait in our lobby. We encourage a quite environment so that your child can do their best. If you would like to make a telephone call during this time, we request you step outside of the office to make calls.
Anything else I need to know prior to the assessment?
1. Please give yourself plenty of time to get to the office. The more relaxed you are, the more relaxed your child will be when they arrive.
2. Please be sure your child has received a good night's rest and a meal prior to the appointment.
3. If your child wears glasses or hearing aids, please bring those items to the appointment.
Where can I call if I have more questions?
You can reach our office at 833-DrGinny (833-374-4669). Our staff will be available Monday through Friday 9 am to 5 pm, excluding holidays.
Do I have to pay more to send a copy of the report to another school?
The $795 fee covers the cost of sending one additional report to the school of your choice. However, it does not include the costs associated with sending a copy of the report to other organizations. Please contact our office with specific requests.
