I would be very careful about admitting my children to a facility owned by a company which obvious are in the need to get clients to the rest of their programs. I believe that such an assessment center should be run without influence from companies who will serve kids later, so their advice can be believed without doubt about whether the referral is done not based on the need of the client but rather on which facility lacks clients.

In the FamilyLight-thread we discuss this problem.
