Coming from Out of Town?

Planning Your Visit

The office is located at Elisky Krasnohorske 135 / 7, in the district of Prague known as “Josefov”. If you are familiar with Prague, 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 assessment, testing will be done 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. Plan to arrive the day before, and depart in the afternoon on the day after testing is complete. This makes it possible to add one or two additional tests 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 the third morning available.

What to Expect During Testing

Plan to arrive at our office at, or just before, 9:30. When you get to Elisky Krasnohorske 135 / 7, buzz “Prague Psych,” 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 waiting 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 testing 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 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 n 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 receive a full written report detailing all findings are recommendations up to a month after your visit.

As long as you're in Prague....

As you know, Prague is a popular tourist destination, and one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Many families combine an assessment visit with a day or two spent exploring this gem of a city. Feel free to ask ahead of time for restaurant recommendations and family-friendly suggestions on what to see and do during your visit in Prague.
