Working with children, adolescents, & young adults for sustainable change
Parents often wonder what to do when their children:
- Under-achieve in school
- Struggle to maintain focus
- Show signs of ADHD
- Take a pessimistic view of the world
- Give up easily when something is challenging
- Act surly or demanding
- Spend too much time alone in their rooms or on screens
- Fail to manage T1 diabetes
We provide proactive, comprehensive psychological and neuropsychological assessments that answer vexing problem situations for students and parents. We help discover strengths and overcome weaknesses.
Whether your child or teen is under-achieving in school, experiencing depression, or failing to manage T1 diabetes demands, our first goal is to understand in detail your son’s or daughter’s current plight. Our first step is to meet with you and your son or daughter, to understand your goals, and to recommend services and interventions we believe will help.
Comprehensive psychological or neuropsychological assessment can help with diagnosis and treatment planning for (among others):
- Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Learning Disorder
- Weak Executive Function
- Slow Processing Speed
- Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Diabetes Adherence Issues
As valuable as they are, assessment results are not the end of the story. We also need to enhance students’ self-awareness, motivation, and confidence. Through enhancing self-efficacy, we help them learn to identify and solve problems for themselves in the future.
Drs. Forster, Fulop and Cragnolino share a similar approach to comprehensive assessment and treatment. We often consult and collaborate. We also have individual areas of expertise.
