Attachment Center of Kansas

Helping Families Build Stronger Connections

Consultations

Consultations are available for parents in the process of adopting or who have recently adopted a child/ren.  Based on information provided, parents are assisted in preparing for likely behaviors the child may engage in, understanding the child's specific needs and appropriate interventions to use before, during and/or after the placement of the child in the home.  


Consultations are available for $150 and includes one 50 minute office visit, up to 20 pages of review of information on the child/ren and a packet of information for parents.  

Parent Coaching

Parent coaching is available for parents who do not feel therapy is appropriate but instead need some help with developing parenting techniques, any issues that occur with the techniques and support.   


Email coaching sessions are $45 for up to 3 emails responses.  


In office coaching sessions are available for $90 per session


Comprehensive Diagnostic Assessment 

A Comprehensive Diagnostic Assessment is required to start therapeutic services at the Center for attachment and/or trauma.  It involves gathering information on both the permanent primary caretaker and child as well as their relationship.  


The assessment covers areas of attachment, trauma (including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, sexual abuse and stress), executive brain functioning, development (sensory, social, motor, communication and living skills), the parent child relationship and overall emotional health of both the parent and child. The results assist in determining an accurate diagnosis, co-occurring problem areas, appropriate referrals and interventions and effective parenting interventions.  This meets the standards for attachment and trauma assessments which can be found here.


The Comprehensive Psychological Assessment  usually involves 2 to 4 more sessions, after the psychiatric diagnostic evaluation, with family sessions billed under the parent and individual sessions billed under the child.    A deposit is required to cover the cost of testing materials or a no show/late cancellation fee.


Once the evaluation is completed, a session is scheduled to discuss the results of the evaluation, recommendations and treatment options.  It will be billed as either a family session or consultation depending on if services are private pay or insurance. A written comprehensive report on the assessment is optional for $200.

Therapy Sessions

Treatment is relationship focused and experience based.  Parent involvement is usually required through participation in sessions and/or at home interventions and activities.  Therefore two sessions, one with the child and parent and a second with the parent only, on a weekly basis is required for attachment and trauma treatment.  For other treatments an additional parent session is based on what is needed.
