Herman & Associates: Additional Information on our Comprehensive Assessments.

Multidisciplinary Team Model

For the purpose of all evaluations, Herman & Associates employs a multidisciplinary diagnostic team for a comprehensive evaluation.  The assessment team is individually configured based on the characteristics of each case.  The make-up of the team will include Dr. Herman and other professionals.  The other professionals may include licensed psychologists, educational specialists, speech and language therapists, psychology assistants, and/or independent contractors.  Dr. Herman is responsible for conducting the initial intake, meeting with the student, determining if an assessment is warranted, and fully informing the student of the assessment process.  In addition, the informed consent is reviewed and the limits of confidentiality are discussed including the signing of releases to allow the assessment team to have professional consultations with the referring clinician.  Additionally, Dr. Herman is responsible for creating, overseeing, and reviewing each individual part of the assessment plan, conducting the case conference where all results from the assessment are presented and discussed, and meeting with the student to disseminate the final results and recommendations resulting from the assessment.  Each individual professional is responsible for administration, scoring, interpretation and providing a written report under the supervision of Dr. Herman.  Every team member attends the case conference, shares their results from the evaluation, participates in the formulation of the diagnostic impressions, and discusses recommendations and accommodations as warranted for that individual case.   In addition, the referring clinician is frequently invited to the case conference to share the information they have gathered to date.  In this way, Herman & Associates attempts to include all the professionals who are involved in the case on the assessment team.
