My name is Nadine Wengroff and I am the intake coordinator at RNBC. I am an Advanced Practice Nurse as well as a Clinical Nurse Specialist in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Nursing. I am, most likely, the first person you will speak with when exploring options for services for your child at RNBC.
Regardless of what clinical service you are interested in obtaining for your child, I will spend a few minutes on the phone with you gathering information about your child’s current situation, and explain in detail the services we provide. Often the process is straightforward, especially if you are certain of the service your child needs. For example, if it has been recommended that your child undergo a comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation, I will spend a few minutes on the phone explaining the evaluation process, answer any questions you may have, and determine which of our clinicians would be the best fit for your child.
If, on the other hand, you are not certain about the next step you should take, we will engage in a more in depth discussion in order to gain a better understanding of your child’s current needs and determine the most appropriate intervention.
Please feel free to call me directly at 847–763-7944.
HELPFUL TIPS ON SCHEDULING EVALUATIONS AND SCHOOL IEP MEETINGS:
- Wait time for evaluations vary in length. To be on the safe side, anticipate a two month wait.
- Typically, we receive the most calls for evaluations following parent teacher conferences in the fall and spring. During those times, evaluations are commonly scheduled further out in time depending upon our psychologists’ availability.
- If you are planning to schedule an evaluation during the summer we recommend that you call ahead, before the end of the school year, to obtain forms for teachers to complete.
- If you are planning to schedule an IEP meeting at the beginning of the school year, and are interested in having one of our clinicians attend, call to schedule with that clinician ASAP.
