At times, a family or school may request a full psychiatric evaluation and report for educational purposes.  These evaluations also include an in-depth consultation with our academic director to obtain a thorough educational history.  A report will be provided that will outline psychiatric and educational recommendations that will help create an appropriate plan for the patient.
