Once You Are Here

Once you are in front of the building, someone from our team will meet you outside and take a few minutes to get acquainted with you and your child. Once your child feels comfortable, testing will begin in a private room designated for testing. As a reminder, parents may not be present in the testing room while testing is being conducted.
After your child has completed the testing he or she will be shown the mock-scanner room to get a good feel for how the scan will be conducted. Once your child feels comfortable we will proceed to the actual scanner room.
For parents: The entire experience will take roughly 3 hours (2 hours for testing and preparation and 1 hour for the scan) so feel free to bring a good book, or anything to keep you occupied.
