What to Expect
COVID-19: What to Expect for Your Child’s Safety at In-Person Appointments
We’ve made a lot of changes to our facilities to protect our patients, families and staff from Covid-19.
Visitor restrictions at all our locations
At all of our clinics, we recommend that only one parent or caregiver accompany a patient to their appointment. However, if two caregivers need to come along, we will allow it at this time. Siblings who are younger than 12 months are also allowed to come along. Siblings of any other age are not allowed to come along, and we do not allow more than two caregivers without an exception.
- When you come for your appointment, you will see that we’re requiring everyone to wear masks at all times, cleaning check-in and registration desks between visits, screening for symptoms at all entrances and have set up our spaces to encourage social distancing.
- Watch what to expect at your clinic visit during COVID-19 (video).

- Please bring your child’s testing records, Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) or 504 plans and report cards from your child’s school to the appointment.
- Ask your child’s primary care provider to fax your child’s records to us at 206-729-3063.
- Before your child’s appointment, we will set up a 1-hour discussion to better understand your goals for the evaluation. Often, we will schedule it as the first part of your appointment.
- Learn more about what to do before your appointment.
- We review the results and may gather more information from your child’s provider or school.
- We will schedule a follow-up visit to talk about results and recommendations. This visit may or may not include your child depending on what we decide during your first visit.
- After we talk about the results, we will mail you a written report. This report is confidential and only shared with schools and other providers if you and/or your child (13 years old or older) sign an “Authorization to Exchange Patient Health Information Form.”
- Based on your child’s needs, we may work with their healthcare team or attend school meetings like those that could help your child qualify for an IEP or 504 plan. Schools use these plans to outline help and services they can provide to your child.
- To help determine how your child is doing, we may need to do more evaluations to compare to the first results.
- Find your location in our map and directions section.
- Arrive 15 minutes before your appointment to allow time for registration.
