Overview

With a special focus on brain function and child development, we assess your child’s cognitive, emotional and behavioral functioning and determine the best treatment to help improve his quality of life.

We have one focus: kids.

If your child has a known or suspected neurologic disorder - such as epilepsy, head injury, neuromuscular disorder or chronic medical illness - we're here to help. We have a team of pediatric psychologists, neuropsychologists, counselors and social workers who work with other pediatric specialists as needed to treat all aspects of a child’s condition.

Our evaluations may include:

  • full cognitive (thinking and problem-solving) assessment
  • academic testing
  • memory and attention examinations

We use the evaluation to determine the best treatments and non-medical interventions, such as habit-reversal training for tics, behavioral treatment for sleep disorders, and cognitive behavioral therapies for headaches.

We'll also work with you and your child’s school to integrate the findings and recommendations from our evaluations to help your child achieve her best chance for academic success. Our care is designed to assess your child's cognitive strengths and weaknesses, ease emotional stress, and develop a plan of treatment and intervention for home and school.
