Frequently Asked Questions

What Should I Bring to the First Appointment?

Any school reports or documents from other professionals that you think will help us better understand your child. Videos of your child that you think will highlight your concerns can also be helpful.

Location and Parking

The clinic is located in the Westhills Corporate Center in SW Calgary. Free parking is available in the front parking lot and street. Suite 102 is located on the main floor of the building. Please have a seat in the waiting room upon your arrival.

Cancellation Policy

Please contact the clinic as soon as possible if you are not able to attend your scheduled appointment. The clinic requires 24 hours notice for cancellations. Late cancellations and missed appointments will be charged at the regular rate.

Fees and Payment

Fees are set in accordance with the rate recommended by the Psychologists’ Association of Alberta at $200 per hour.

Health Insurance

Psychological services are partly or fully covered by many extended health insurance plans. You will be issued a detailed receipt at the time of service in order to submit it to your provider for coverage. It is recommended that you contact your provider to obtain information about reimbursement entitled to each family member per year. Psychological services not covered by insurance are a tax deductible medical expense.

The Process

What are the next steps?

We work with you to get a full picture and deep understanding of your concerns throughout the assessment and collaborative treatment process.

We also invite parents to be very involved whenever possible. Working together, solutions can be found that are backed by science.

Contact the Clinic

Email info@childforward.ca or contact us through our website to start the process. Let us know what your main concern(s) are and if you would like to schedule a brief phone consult to make sure you are in the right place. You do not require a referral from your physician.

Intake Assessment

An intake assessment will be scheduled with you so that we can better understand the concerns and what will be helpful. For younger children and children/teens with Selective Mutism this is typically a parents-only meeting, although this can be discussed with our team during scheduling.

Treatment Sessions

First sessions are typically for information sharing and planning with families. We will discuss treatment recommendations that are most supported by research. Strategies are typically shared with parents so that you become the expert, and feel comfortable, in supporting your child or teen outside of the office.

School Involvement

In addition to treatment sessions with the child/teen and parents, in-person or videoconference meetings with involved school personnel are also often key to seeing lasting changes for some issues.
