For those who have had their kids undergo a psychological assessment and gotten an expected diagnosis, was it worth it?
We can't easily afford the assessment cost (but could pay for it if we had to) and I'm pretty sure we know what our child's general diagnosis might be--so if that diagnosis is confirmed for nearly 2k, what then? We already have access to any medication and therapy options we're going to be offered through our insurance. They don't need any accomodations at school. All the behavioral symptoms schools would care about only present at home and there are no accomodations at school that would help them--it's not an issue of needing an aid, extra time for work, the ability to have breaks, etc.
I'm wondering if we should put that assessment money towards a non-network therapist--or more sessions--or anything that helps our child. We also are already spending a lot of money on the issues we see.
