Evaluation

Through Prospect Center, individuals aged three can receive a multi-disciplinary evaluation completed by a team of licensed and certified individuals who have a strong working knowledge of developmental disabilities. Parents and primary caregivers are always part of the process. The Agency is also available to support families with follow-up services as needed.

PARENTAL CHOICE

If your child’s evaluation should result in a recommendation for services, the parents have the right to choose where their child receives those services as mandated by federal and state law. You, as a parent, know your child best and play a pivotal role in evaluating programs and deciding what you want for your child. One thing is for certain, decisions will be made and your involvement as a parent is crucial.

HOW DO I MAKE A DECISION?

  • Keep an open mind and trust your own abilities while gaining information from as many sources as possible.
  • Visit programs, observe and consider all your options. Bring a trusted friend or family member to help you evaluate and assess what you see and the input that you get from professionals.
  • Most importantly, once decisions have been made and services are provided, continue to observe, evaluate and fully participate in your child’s program.
