We are looking forward to meeting you and your child and strive to work as a team with you to make the visit as stress-free as possible. We want to come up with solutions that work for your child and situation.
We encourage many questions so please consider bringing a list of questions to your visit and any additional
information you think would be helpful. It is often very helpful for Dr. Balke to review old report cards,
standardized test results, IEP forms, school psychoeducational evaluations, and previous assessments. If relevant
and at all possible, consider bringing a brief video of any events such as seizure-like behavior you may be
concerned about. You may wish to review old videos and photos at home and bring anything you feel would be
useful if a change has been noted over time. Also, you may want to have your child wear a swimsuit under
their clothes if you feel that the problem can best be seen/examined when the child is partially clothed.
This is especially helpful for problems with muscle weakness or changes in walking pattern.
Dr. Balke generally will see both parent and child together for the entire visit. Please notify staff you have a sensitive issue that you would like discussed in private with Dr. Balke without your child present.
