Pre-Adoption Psychological Evaluations
After all the ups and downs, your dream of having a family is so close to a reality.
But now your adoption specialist asked you for a pre-adoption psychological evaluation… in addition to the exhaustive home study that you’ve already completed.
You’re not exactly sure what a pre-adoption evaluation even is.
So now you’re worried. Saying the wrong thing to a psychologist you just met could mean the end of your adoption process…or delay it with more red tape. Starting a family has already been a long journey. Now you’re nervous that this pre-adoption psychological evaluation might be the one thing that screws up everything.
With so much at stake, you need a psychologist that understands the requirements for adopting.
Based in Miami, FL, our licensed psychologists can conduct these pre-adoption evaluations in both English and Spanish. Our team is multi-culturally trained and familiar with the demands of both domestic and international adoptions. Your evaluation is conducted and your report is written to meet the specifications of your adoption agency and the country in which you are adopting.
A pre-adoption psychological evaluation doesn’t have to be just another (scary) hoop you jump through.
