What happens during a consultation with a social worker?

First consultation
During the first visit, the social worker will ask you questions to better understand your child’s situation. They will then suggest solutions and develop a treatment plan. We offer both individual and family sessions, depending on the specific issue.

If your child’s situation requires it, they may be referred to another one of our team’s many specialists or to other relevant community organizations.

Follow-up appointments
During follow-up visits, we assess changes since the previous consultation and review the treatment plan with you. We can also suggest other resources that may be helpful.
