Parenting Assessments

Helping Children Transition as Their Family Dynamics Change

Parenting Assessments

There are many constructs to consider when determining a parent’s ability and capacity to adapt their practices. The Parenting Assessment via a written report to the Court identifies in detail, a parent’s strengths and needs in the areas of development, attachment and relationships, interactions, roles parents play and more.

  • Some parents may have strength in understanding child development but struggle to practice appropriate discipline, or struggle to provide emotional support, or to create safe boundaries, the parenting assessment provides the Court a clear picture of where the individual parent’s strengths and needs are.
  • The Parenting Assessment utilizes parent meetings/interviews and parent-child observations as well as written assessments to develop conclusions about parenting styles.
  • A written report to the Court and/or any other referring party will be provided as part of the this service. When completed as intended, the Court could expect a full report within 4-6 weeks of initiation of service.
  • This service may be used in conjunction with the Supervised Parenting Time, Therapeutic Supervised Parenting Time and/or Individualized Parent Education Programs.
