The ViewPoint Center’s assessments are unique because of their:
- Multidisciplinary approach: ViewPoint Center Staff, coming from different disciplines and backgrounds (such as psychiatric, therapeutic, milieu, academic), are able to observe and assess patients on a regular basis over the course of 7-8 weeks. Their staff works closely together, looking through a variety of lenses and angles to come to a consensus about a patient’s diagnostic profile and treatment needs moving forward.
- Flexible assessments and testing: Their longer length of stay allows ViewPoint to be able to reschedule testing if a patient is having a bad day or week. This allows for more accurate assessments.
- Expansive testing library: They have an extensive testing library to work with. This allows ViewPoint to add tests for patients that weren’t originally part of their testing battery when observations of patients include new and different behaviors or patterns that had previously gone unnoticed.
- Ability to compare observations and testing over the course of multiple weeks: their longer length of stay provides ViewPoint Center with the chance to track the progress of patients and compare observations over a long period of time. Patients may be behaving very differently between week 1 and week 6, which allows ViewPoint to generate a more accurate treatment plan because of this longitudinal observation.
