ViewPoint Center's multidisciplinary assessments provide a thorough evaluation of patients from a variety of different perspectives. With professionals from multiple disciplines working together to contribute to the assessment process, ViewPoint is able to form a more accurate assessment that gives a fuller picture of patients.
What makes their multidisciplinary assessments unique?
Their multidisciplinary assessments are unique because:
- They are carried out in “real time”: their staff are continuously communicating with each other, making adjustments to the assessment and treatment process based on what they see from patients on a daily basis. They are constantly making adjustments as a multidisciplinary team to relay the best, most useful information to parents and consultants. Their staff meet on a regular basis to share their insights about patients and exchange information that is used in shaping assessment and treatment.
- Assessments are carried out over several weeks, rather than several days: They are able to observe patients in a variety of different settings over multiple weeks. This helps them see the ways in which a patient’s behavior may change in one setting versus another, providing more data for them to form conclusions at the end of the assessment process.
- Their staff are full time and work with patients throughout the assessment process: the continuity of care at our program is unique. The same multidisciplinary staff are observing patients throughout their entire stay at ViewPoint. This helps contribute to forming a more complete, accurate assessment.
