At Behavioral Diagnostics & Treatment
We provide proactive, comprehensive psychological and neuropsychological assessments that answer vexing problems and situations that impact functioning and development. We help uncover and discover strengths and overcome weaknesses.
Whether you, your child, teen, or young adult is under-achieving in school, experiencing depression, struggling to launch, feeling confused about their vocational options, or failing to manage T1 diabetes, our first goal is to understand in detail your current plight. Our first step is to meet and begin a process to understand you, your goals, and your values. Then we can recommend services and interventions that are evidence based, and that 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 self-awareness, motivation, and confidence. Through enhancing self-efficacy, we help the individuals we work with, learn to identify and solve problems for themselves in the future.
Drs. Forster, Fulop, Cragnolino, Marquardt, and Shada share a similar approach to comprehensive assessment and treatment. We consult and collaborate. We each have specific areas of expertise.
