First, wait to find out if the regional center psychologist says if you qualify for regional center services. If they say you do not qualify, and you disagree, get an independent evaluation. Psychological evaluations and diagnoses are not an exact science. To diagnose you, psychologists interpret the information they get from testing and records. Different psychologists may interpret the same information differently. Get another evaluation. Find an independent psychologist who can evaluate you and is familiar with developmental disabilities. Independent assessors may be more balanced in their evaluations. They may take more time with you. If the regional center says you are not eligible and you appeal, remember the regional center will refer to their psychologist’s evaluation and opinions at the appeal hearing. The regional center will usually have the psychologist at the hearing to support their opinions. You need an independent expert to tell the judge a different opinion about your condition.
