Insurance Coverage:

Dr. Taylor is currently in-network with several commercial insurances, please contact her for more details.

  • Diagnostic Interview: This is an initial interview with you and your child to gather information, to clarify diagnosis, to determine initial treatment recommendations including plans for additional assessment.
  • Parenting Consultations: This service is short term (1-4 sessions) and involves an initial diagnostic interview (which may be covered by your insurance provider) followed by a few sessions where you as parents will be provided general guidance and education to address behavioral management and to coach in developmentally appropriate, positive parenting strategies.
  • Testing: This service must be initiated by a formal referral to service via medical, mental health (including referral by Taylor Psychological Services LLC after completion of an initial Diagnostic Interview), or school provider. If your child receives testing, your child’s performance will be statistically adjusted so that it can be compared with other children in the same age range. The assessment is a measure of how your child performed at the time of the testing which, as you know, could be influence by several factors. After the test is administered it will be scored and a report will be generated within 30 business days. At that time a feedback session will be scheduled to provide you, the guardian, a copy of the report and to explain the findings and treatment recommendations and to answer any questions you may have.

    Psychological assessment/testing is a multi-step process.1) A diagnostic interview will be completed to develop an assessment plan

    2) Releases of information will be attained to allow review of records (e.g. school, mental health, medical, etc.) as well as contact with other collateral informants.

    3) Primary care providers, teachers, and/or other persons working closely with the child will complete paper and pencil items (or via electronic link) describing their observations of the child

    4) Testing will occur with the child to better understand their cognitive and social-emotional functioning and behavioral presentation.

    * It is important to note that in most cases formal testing processes tests are administered individually and it is not possible for a parent to be present.

    Developmental Testing is used to determine possible Autism Spectrum Disorder, Intellectual Disability/Cognitive processing concerns, ADHD, Adaptive Functioning, etc. This service involves:

    1) A diagnostic interview with in-depth developmental history, as well as some initial screening measures will be completed to develop an assessment plan

    2) Releases of information will be attained to allow review of records (e.g. school, mental health, medical, etc.) as well as contact with other collateral informants.

    3) Primary care providers, teachers, and/or other persons working closely with the child will complete paper and pencil items (or via electronic link) describing their observations of the child

    4) In some cases, developmental testing will occur one-on-one with the child to better understand their cognitive and social-emotional functioning and behavioral presentation. At other times, a parent will be asked to sit in on the appointment.

    * It is important to note that in most cases formal testing processes tests are administered individually and it is not possible for a parent to be present.
