Welcome To The Practice!

Initial Visit

Welcome to the practice! We look forward to working with your student and family. A comprehensive academic, developmental, social, intervention and family history will be taken at the first visit, as well as a review and determination of the parent's and student's most important concerns and goals. The following list may assist us in this initial visit and help us all to develop momentum.

Review the list below for suggestions of what to bring to the first meeting, if possible. Please do not fret/worry if you do not have these things readily available. We can help you collect these materials. The team at Dean Doering & Associates requests this information from relevant schools and professionals, as well as determines what information is even important or necessary. These issues can be discussed at the initial meeting and plans to acquire these records can be made at that time.
