Treatment Phase 5

Treatment Phase 5

Phase 5 (2 years~): Second Comprehensive Psycho-educational Evaluation and Case Closing

Phase 5 begins after about two years in the program have passed. It is a step where clinicians re-evaluate and analyze how much the child’s cognitive, intellectual, linguistic, emotional behavioral, or social problems revealed from the initial Comprehensive Psycho-educational Evaluation have reduced. It is not desirable to conduct the Comprehensive Psycho-educational Evaluation too frequently; it should be conducted after 1.5 to 2 years after the initial assessment to objectively evaluate the effectiveness of a particular Treatment program, set new goals, and identify if any areas have not been developed.  
 
After retaking the Comprehensive Psycho-educational Evaluation, the treatment team delivers their opinions on the direction of the program thereafter. If the initial treatment goals have been achieved, the case will be closed with the consent of the parents or he may continue with the program with new goals and objectives.
