I hereby authorize release of information for myself or my child:

INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO COMPLETE THE RELEASE FORM: Release forms are required for Dr. Davidson to obtain information from other people about you or your children. There are two groups of people from whom information is requested.
The first group includes Professionals/Institutions/Organizations. This group typically includes primary care physicians, specialty physicians, counselors, hospitals, speech therapists, schools and so forth that will provide records concerning you.
The second group includes Personal Parenting References (i.e. Friend/Family/Associates). This group typically includes people that can make a report about your parenting abilities and mental stability. Please provide five people in this group as references. 
As an example of the difference between the two groups, understand that records regarding your child would be requested from a school district (an institution), while a teacher in the school district commenting on your parenting abilities would be a report. Therefore, a fax # would be necessary to obtain records from the school. An email address would be necessary to obtain a report from the teacher. 
> Complete a release with fax # for each Professional/Institution/Organization for you in the last 5 years. 
> Complete a release with fax # for each Professional/Institution/Counselor for your child in the last 5 years. Your child's name should be at the top of the release if the release is for their counselor, school, pediatrician etc. Your name should be at the top of the release for your physician, counselor etc.
> Complete a release with email address for each Friend/Family/Associate that you would like us to contact.
A new release form is generated by clicking on the "release form" link on Dr. Davidson's website. Please email Dr. Davidson if you have difficulties or need help completing the release forms:
