Parental Fitness Evaluations for Adoptive Parents

At A Vision of Self, we offer Parental Fitness Evaluations – a focused psychological evaluation usually ordered by a court. This evaluation is used to assess an adoptive parent’s capacity to parent a child before custody is granted. This evaluation may include: child/parent observations, clinical interviews, and psychological testing. The aspiring adoptive parent’s habits, lifestyle, and psychological state will also be evaluated. This evaluation is conducted in order to determine if an adoptive parent is fully capable of providing the emotional and physical needs of the child.
