School Consultation Q&A

What is a school consultation?

Dr. Zeshan is an experienced child and adult psychiatrist with advanced training in child and adolescent psychiatry. A school consultation is one of the many child and adolescent-focused services he offers at his practice. 

Who benefits from a school consultation?

For some children, school can be a source of stress and anxiety that affects mood, behavior, and school performance. For parents, the source of the pressure can be challenging to pinpoint and may be related to school work, friendships, or extracurricular activities.

You may benefit from a school consultation with Dr. Zeshan if your child’s mood or behavior has changed or your child is expressing a strong desire not to go to school. 

In addition to managing mental health conditions like depression and anxiety in children and teens, Dr. Zeshan also specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of autism and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). 

Children with these neurodevelopmental conditions often require an individualized education plan (IEP) that outlines their particular learning needs and how the school plans to meet those needs.

If you have concerns about your child’s IEP and need additional services, Dr. Zeshan can help. He works closely with you and the school to ensure your child gets what they need to thrive. 

What can I expect during a school consultation?

Dr. Zeshan takes an integrative and holistic approach to care, and you can expect a comprehensive evaluation during a school consultation. The details of your appointment may depend on your specific concerns and needs.

Dr. Zeshan can conduct appointments, including your initial evaluation and follow-up care, through telemedicine.

During the consultation, Dr. Zeshan asks detailed questions about your concerns and your child’s medical and mental health history. He may also spend time talking to your child to better understand their needs and concerns.

What happens after a school consultation?

After your school consultation, Dr. Zeshan develops a personalized treatment plan for you and your child that addresses your child’s specific needs. This plan may include:

  • Family therapy
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy
  • Play therapy
  • Mindfulness therapy

He may also provide specific recommendations for the school that support your child’s learning needs.
