The Neuropsychologist is responsible for providing comprehensive neuropsychological and academic evaluations for children, adolescents and young adults with a variety of concerns.

Our group provides early childhood evaluations that partner a speech and language evaluation with a cognitive/developmental assessment for children age 1-5. We also see many school age and high school students in public, independent and specialized school settings. We also often see young adults who are transitioning to lege or vocational settings.
Remediation services in our center include writing remediation, organizational skills work, and more generalized cognitive remediation. Additionally, our group often provides public workshops, written content for the childmind.org website and school consultation regarding accommodations and interventions for our students.
