“We’re not talking about ways to enhance or target talents and strengths of a traditional kid. We are primarily working with kids for whom something is really not going well.”
– Douglas Bodin, Bodin Associates

The mental health professional will examine all facets of the child's life and then help build a plan. As mentioned above, special needs evaluation and placement focuses on the child’s fundamental building blocks.

Special needs often present themselves through an acute outburst or a precipitating crisis. Families may not have time to investigate. Something has gone wrong. The family knows the behaviors; they see the outward signs. A crisis in the child’s life jeopardizes the child and the family. Why? Special needs requires families and professionals to approach the situation with a concentrated focus on the physical, mental, and emotional health of the child.
