What to Expect at Brighton Center
Here are some other helpful things you should know before your visit to the
Brighton Center for Pediatric Neurodevelopment:
We evaluate and treat individuals as young as 14 months old
and as old as 26 years old.
Are you a teen or young adult who dreads going to a "kids clinic"? Never fear. We have a "Teen/Young Adult Lounge" created just for you to wait in. This way the younger kids have their own room to play in while you relax and stare at your phone or catch up on some pop culture reading of magazines and books we provide (and if you are a "kid at heart" who wants to hang out in the general waiting room and play with the toys, be our guest...we won't tell).
In addition to diagnostics and assessments, we also provide parent training/behavioral coaching for home challenges, educational advocacy/consulting/tutoring for school challenges, and family counseling.
We do not directly bill insurance companies for services and families receive coded receipts to submit for reimbursement.
We make the experience safe and fun for all involved.
For our younger clientele, our clinic rooms have lots of toys and no shots are given. Teens and young adults will enjoy being able to relax on the couch or in the conference room while they participate in treatment (and no shots for the big kids either!).
If it is necessary to cancel your appointment, we ask that you give us at least two business days notice. This courtesy allows other patients who are waiting
for an appointment to use this time slot.
For cancellations after that time, there will be a $50 charge.
For no call/no show appointments, there will be a charge equal to
half the cost of the visit.
Current IEPs and reports from previous evaluations can be helpful to review during your initial appointment. If you have this documentation available, please bring it with you to your child's appointment.
For Dr. Bowers:
New visits last two hours, return visits last one hour, and psychological testing lasts between one and four hours.
Visits include history taking, review of relevant records and documentation, and developmental evaluation (usually play based and observational).
Reports are sent to the family and primary physician (unless requested otherwise by the parent).
Printed copies of recommendations are frequently provided.
Caregivers receive a testing report, including recommendations, at the conclusion of a formal psychological/intellectual evaluation with the child.
