Our office is located at Elisky Krasnohorske 135 / 7, in the city center of Prague. If you are familiar with this city, we are located just west of the Spanish Synagogue. Prague is a very safe, walkable city, and you should have no difficulty finding a hotel that is an easy 10-15 minute (or less) walk away.
If you are coming for a psychoeducational or neuropsychological assessment, testing will take place across two days. You should plan to arrive on the afternoon of the day before the assessment begins so that you child is settled and has a good night’s sleep before we begin. If possible, you should plan to spend three nights in Prague, arriving the day before, and departing on the afternoon on the day after testing is complete. This makes it possible to do some additional testing on the morning of your departure day if necessary. We don’t always need that third morning, but when we do, it’s extremely helpful to have a third morning available.
Plan to arrive at our office at, or just before, 9:30. When you get to Elisky Krasnohorske 135 / 7, buzz “Prague English Psychology Services,” and we’ll let you in. Our office is on the third floor, and we’ll leave the door ajar so you can’t miss it.
Our office is in an apartment in a historical, mixed residential and commercial building. Parents spend the day in the living room, which features comfortable furniture, fast wifi, and a desk. If you have work to do, you will be able to get it down while you are here.
Each day begins with a short meeting in the kitchen or the living room, where we might have a cup of tea or coffee together. After your child is comfortable and settled, we will begin testing in the adjoining office.
Testing normally continues until 3:00 or as late as 4:00 or 4:30, depending upon the age our your child. Younger children tire earlier, so we try to finish for the day before they are too fatigued. Older children and adolescents can generally work a bit longer, but we try not to overdo it on the first day.
Our goal is to get your chid’s best performance, so we’ll take short breaks during testing. We have child-friendly snacks available (things like yogurt, protein bars, pretzels, juice), and you are welcome to bring things that you know your child will enjoy during a “snack break”. You are also welcome to store food in the office refrigerator if you wish.
You’ll have an hour for lunch at 12:30. There are many great restaurants in the area and we can discuss options during your visit. If your child has special dietary needs, you are welcome to prepare food for them in the office kitchen. Coffee and tea will be available to you throughout the day.
Generally, we meet with parents just after finishing testing, late on the second day. We will then discuss test results and recommendations, and all of your questions should be answered by the end of this meeting. We will talk for 90 minutes or maybe even longer, depending upon your questions. We have materials for children to play with (e.g., colored pencils, modeling clay), but you might want to bring something that they will enjoy doing during our meeting (they will be able to relax in the living room or kitchen while we meet in the testing office).
You will also receive a full written report detailing all findings and recommendations after your visit.
