  • Neuropsychological Evaluations:  A neuropsychological evaluation will assess skills important to learning such as higher reasoning, language skills, auditory and visual processing, visual-motor skills, and memory. 
  • Psychological/Social-Emotional Evaluations: Information obtained through interviews and testing measures will help understand emotional functioning and how it may be impacting behavior and/or academic success.

  • Admissions Evaluations:  Admissions testing for independent schools.

(Every effort will be made to provide Admissions Evaluations within five business days, and Comprehensive Evaluations within ten business days.)

  • Parent Training and Coaching:  Parent training involves teaching parents and caregivers how to increase desirable child behavior, reduce children's misbehavior, improve parent-child interactions, and bring about a positive family atmosphere. Specific skills taught may include praise, positive attention, administration of rewards and privileges, rule-setting, ignoring, reprimands, withdrawal of privileges, and time-out.   Because even the most effective skill used at the wrong time or in the wrong way may not promote wanted changes in behavior, parents are taught timing, consistency, intensity, and integration of the various skills.
