We work with your child and family to design an individualized plan that will help your child develop their abilities.
Our team of neuropsychologists is highly trained and skilled in evaluating the needs of children, teens and young adults. Evaluations provided by our team can help you, your pediatrician, teachers and therapists assist your child in the most effective ways, based on your child's strengths and weaknesses so the he or she can achieve their full potential.
