It may include evaluation by a single professional or a team of professionals, depending on the individual's needs and the requests of the referring physician.  The evaluation is designed to define the problem(s), and recommend education and other forms of treatment to help the person reach his or her potential. The BCDD can offer treatment or can make referrals for services in the community.
