Enhance Your Child’s Ability to be as Successful as Possible.


As parents, you strive to help your children as much as possible. Despite your best efforts, however, you may see them struggling in some areas.  These struggles may occur early in a child’s development, manifested as difficulty understanding directions, learning to read or managing social interactions. For others, the challenge may arise as a child progresses in age, whether it involves reading comprehension, completing tests in the allotted time period, attending to tasks or organizing tasks and materials.


Despite assistance, these struggles may persist, leaving parents, children and teachers feeling frustrated or helpless. Under those circumstances, a psychoeducational evaluation may open the door to greater understanding of your child by everyone involved and help point the way toward solutions. Our evaluations help determine if your child has a learning difference, or other issues that negatively impact his or her ability to learn. We want to help your family understand how your child learns.

Our highly qualified staff uses evidence based practices, resources, and implemented with discretion and fidelity. The comprehensive testing is not only for treatment, but for academic accommodations and self knowledge. We want to build trust and respect among families.  Accepting students ages 5 through 21, private pay only.


 

Evaluations and Fees

 

Consultation

Start Here. Your child is struggling, and you don’t know why. The only way to get a full picture is to have your child evaluated. This is not an easy decision. You may worry about stigma, or labeling.  You may even wonder if your child’s difficulties are serious enough for an assessment. An initial consultation with our school psychologist is a good place to start putting the puzzle together.
