The Assessment

Each child has a 50 minute assessment in order to see if they can work with the therapist and for the therapist to see if the child will engage with the therapy. During the initial assessment the parents are invited in for the first 15 minutes in order to:

  • Alleviate anxiety in the child
  • Provide contact details
  • Hear the confidentiality contract
  • Ask questions and provide extra information
  • Provided the child is comfortable, the adult will then be asked to wait in reception. By the end of the session both the child and the parent/carer will be asked to discuss whether the child wishes to continue and if so, which package they would prefer. A decision is not expected immediately but having agreed to continue the decision may be given at the following appointment.
