Frequently Asked Questions

3. Answers to Typical Questions
   
  d. How should I prepare my child for the first appointment?
   
  The child should know that she will meet with Dr. Newman for a 45-minute play interview or talk interview.  This is an informal meeting during which Dr. Newman will ask questions to get to know the child, and that they may draw or play.  The child can bring a favorite toy, a drawing, a book, or a collection to share and talk about.  This allows the child to feel more comfortable and may lead the conversation toward a topic or activity the child is familiar with.  Having something of one’s own to hold onto makes one more at ease.  Dr. Newman does not allow video games or a cell phone to be brought to the interview even if this would be the child’s choice of activity.
