CReATE Child/Adolescent Intake Form

Please complete the following information so that we can better determine the type of evaluation needed. If you have any difficulties, please call our office at 828-231-3297.

This form is comprised mainly of checklists, allowing you to scan and complete quickly. There is a section at the beginning to write about your overall concerns and family information; each section thereafter allows for some description if needed.

You will have ample opportunity to provide more information directly to the psychologist over the course of the evaluation process.
