Psychoeducational Evaluation Rates

A comprehensive evaluation involves an interview and review of prior records, as well as the administration, scoring, and interpretation of tests. Dr Schneider must also prepare a written report of the tests' results and meet with parents to review the results.

 

The cost for a comprehensive evaluation is determined by the total number of hours required to complete the evaluation process, from testing time with your child to the results review session with you, at the rate of 120 CHF per hour.
