Momentum staff can provide formal and informal assessment based on individual need. The goal of assessment is to gain a comprehensive understanding of the individual's strengths and areas of need to assist with diagnosis and treatment planning. Example assessments include: Functional Behavior Assessment, Educational Assessment, Psychological Assessment, Adaptive Behavior Assessment, and Curriculum Based Assessment.
Momentum now provides comprehensive diagnostic evaluations. Common referral questions include possible Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, learning disabilities, as well as cognitive, emotional, and behavioral difficulties. Patients are administered a comprehensive battery of assessments that are tailored to address the specific referral question. Results of the evaluation are shared with the patient's family members and individualized, empirically-supported treatment recommendations are provided.
Intervention plans are designed by our professional staff and are individualized and based on a collection of assessment results. Behavior intervention plans are developed in conjunction with parents and teachers to maximize treatment integrity and social validity. Data will be collected at the onset with continual assessment throughout the treatment phases in order to assess and monitor the effectiveness of treatment and guide future plans and target behaviors.
Momentum has licensed psychologists, nationally certified school psychologists, and behavior analysts available to consult with your district, or school. Consultants are available to provide support during IEP meetings, staff trainings, conduct assessments, and assist with treatment planning and implementation to enhance your student's ability to learn throughout the school day.
