Intervention Services

The Klass Center Clinic provides intervention-based services for children who are suspected of having learning disorders; specifically in the areas of reading, math, and writing.  Intervention services are provided by advanced doctoral students, and/or pre-doctoral interns, under direct supervision of a licensed psychologist on the University’s campus.

If the children have not had a comprehensive evaluation, a screening is conducted to determine current levels of functioning in order to establish a baseline from which to work. We utilize a parent consultation model whereby we train the parents how to implement the intervention and collect progress monitoring data so that they can work with their children on a more regular basis than can be accomplished in a clinic setting. Typically, we schedule two to three sessions with another follow-up session 4 - 6 weeks later. In addition, we offer direct services to help remediate academic deficits that are provided in blocks of 8 sessions.

The KLASS Center Clinic is a fee-for-service clinic, therefore, fees are charged for all services.  We do not currently accept third party payment (insurance or TennCare), but we may be able to provide an invoice that may be submitted for reimbursement.  However, a sliding scale may be available for families and individuals with limited income to reduce the cost; proof of income is required in these cases.  Payment is expected at the time of service.
