Q. Do you provide diagnostic services?

Q. I am looking for an official diagnosis, do you provide such services?

A. We do not provide diagnostic services. We do provide functional assessments. We can refer you to excellent diagnostic services providers.


Longer Answer:

RPG Therapeutics LLC does provide functional assessment evaluations, but we do not provide mental health or physical disorder diagnoses.

A formal diagnosis would be something like: Bipolar Disorder Type II, Autism Spectrum, dysgraphia, diabetes, broken leg, hernia, etc. This is important for insurance coverage considerations, government benefits, accessibility considerations at schools, etc.

While a functional assessment looks at the actual level of functioning to determine the ideal interventions necessary to achieve specific goals. This is critical for providing individualized care plans for each individual.

Functional assessment looks something like: "adjusted IQ: 105", "range of motion 20 degrees", "ability to lift 10 pounds with left arm", "adjusted developmental age 9 years", "reading comprehension equivalency to 10th grade", etc.

We work with  care providers as team members. A client that has a diagnosis is brought to us either with existing functional assessment information, or we perform the formal functional assessments to determine the best program features to implement for the client to achieve their goals.
