We are happy to offer in-person Assessments with increased safety measures in place, consisting of virtual or telephone interviews with parents, mask wearing with students, distancing, increased sanitizing, and the electronic exchanges of all documents & forms.
Please note: We currently have a much higher work volume & would therefore ask for your patience in getting back to you.
