Developmental and psychological assessment

We help you find answers to the puzzling question of what is going on with you or your child. We provide assessments for children, adolescents, and adults which enables us to make diagnostic and treatment recommendations. We are experts at assessing learning problems, attention deficit disorders (for both adults and children), and developmental disabilities including Asperger’s and other autistic spectrum disorders, as well as behavioral and emotional issues which may interfere with pursuing life goals or relationships. We also assess for giftedness, underachievement and school readiness.
