What to expect at the initial interview:

Parents or guardians are asked to complete an intake packet and bring the completed intake packet with them to the initial interview. In the CATS division, each intake consists of two interviews. The first interview will be with the parent and/or guardian, the second with the child only. Each interview lasts an hour and has a set fee of $50 each.  Following the initial interview, a treatment plan is devised.

What to expect after the intake:

Based upon the needs of the child and family, a therapist will be assigned following intake.  After a therapist is selected, the parent is contacted and given a brief biography of the chosen therapist. The first appointment is then scheduled.

To schedule an intake appointment for your child, please contact ICP at 212-333-3444.
