After a comprehensive evaluation, the health care provider will discuss results of the evaluation and recommendations with you, which may involve referrals to other pediatric specialists. The goal of the initial visit is to understand your child’s strengths and needs, determine what is typical and what is not, and determine which services your child may need to grow, learn, and develop to the best of his or her ability.
