WE ARE SORRY, BUT FOR EXCEPTIONAL REASONS WE MUST NOW CLOSE OUR WAITING LIST FOR ENGLISH PATIENTS. WATCH OUR HOME PAGE TO FIND OUT WHEN IT WILL BE AVAILABLE.
HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS SHOULD NEVER COMPLETE A FILE FOR A PATIENT.
As we are a bilingual clinic, we conduct assessments in French and English for all RAMQ (Medicare Card)-eligible children and adults over the age of 2.
The cost of this evaluation is covered by the Québec Medicare Plan (RAMQ, medicare card).
MANDATORY MEDICAL REFERRAL : You must have your medical referral in your possession. It must be addressed to a psychiatrist, a child psychiatrist, or specifically to CEVAM, with the following elements:
The full name of the person to be assessed, their medicare number and their date of birth,
The referral must clearly state: " PSYCHIATRIC ASSESSMENT FOR ASD ",
List the presence of major clinical signs suggestive of ASD,
Significant history, if relevant,
The full name of the physician requesting the assessment, their signature and license number.
If the medical referral is not valid, the referral for assessement may not be accepted. To register on our site, you will be required to upload a scanned copy (image or word) of the medical referral.
The use of the Google Chrome browser is essential for the proper functioning of the registration software.
It is recommended NOT to use a cell phone to complete the registration questionnaires.
Please note that CEVAM emails are regularly distributed in spam (spam, spam, "junk mail"). To avoid this situation, please add firstname.lastname@example.org in your contacts and check them regularly.
To use the links to your patient area that are available in emails from us, your session must be disconnected.
Make sure your computer is programmed with EST (North American Eastern Standard Time, UTC-5 time zone), otherwise appointment times may be delayed.
REGISTRATION ON THE SITE: By clicking on "New File", you will be asked for your email address. You will then receive a link by email "Create your Access" to create your password and have access to "My space" where you can find the questionnaires to be completed. For adult patients, remember that someone who knows you very well at a young age should answer some questions for you.
RELEVANT DOCUMENTS: You will also be asked for attached documents of all relevant and available professional assessments, particularly those that were carried out during childhood. All available traces of evaluations carried out by : psychologists, psychiatrists, neuropsychologists, speech therapists, occupational therapists, as well as observations by educators and teachers, and other relevant documents, such as DYP, must be attached to the file.
PARENT/GUARDIAN/SIGNIFICANT OTHER : Some of the standardised measures used in our clinic include questions that pertain to the patient's 4th and 5th years of age. As a result, we require that all patients, including adults, be supported at registration, by someone who knew them well and can reliably answer questions pertaining to the period when the patient was 4-5 years old. Similarly, during the first appointment, the patient must be accompanied by a person who knew him/her at the age of 4-5 years. if the person cannot present in person to our clinic, they may attend via telephone or video conference. We will not be able to proceed with the ASD assessment if this requirement is not met.
Your access to the history questionnaire will be maintained until your file is analyzed by our team. You can come back to it to clarify your answers or add documents in the early stages of the process. However, the SCQ questionnaire can only be answered once, when you have finished answering this questionnaire you will no longer have access to it.
The waiting period varies according to the flow of requests, the age of the patient and the particularities of the case. Currently the waiting list is approximately 9 months. Once you have completed the registration questionnaires, the file will move on to the "Pending validation" step. When this is validated by the clinical team, you will be eligible for the first appointment. You will be able to follow the progress of the stages of your patient file (PD) on "My space".
COVID POLICY : In accordance with government guidelines regarding the social distancing of patients, we conduct assessments either at our clinic at 1 Place du Commerce on Nuns' Island, or by videoconference, if necessary. In fact, in accordance with current guidelines, we may offer to use telemedicine to begin the assessment process. In this context, you may be contacted to discuss this and we will discuss with you the technical feasibility of this mode of assessment. Of course, if this is not technically possible or if you refuse such a process, your order of registration will be maintained and you will be seen as soon as possible.
Wishing you all the very best during this difficult period and kindly advise that you follow the preventative measures.
