GDO-R Private Administration

The Gesell Developmental Observation-Revised (GDO-R) is a comprehensive multidimensional assessment system that assists educators and other professionals in understanding characteristics of child behavior in relation to typical growth patterns between 2½ to 9 years of age.

Understanding these characteristics can allow professionals to develop learning programs that better fit the child’s current state which in turn provide the child with a richer and less frustrating learning experience. For that reason, scheduling a private administration of the GDO-R, for one child or all students, with one of Gesell’s qualified experts can improve teacher-student relationships and yield a more productive school year for everybody involved.

Parents or guardians of the children must complete the Parent/Guardian Questionnaire (also available in Spanish) as part of the assessment. The administration takes approximately 45 minutes and is then followed by a detailed final report on the developmental stage of the assessed child that can be submitted to school administrators, pediatricians, psychologists and other professionals working with young children.

Follow up consultations can be arranged at $100 per hour. Please email us to arrange.
