We provide state of the art neuropsychological and educational assessments, clear and comprehensive reports and recommendations, practical strategies to compensate for a child's learning deficits, and monitoring of academic progress using evaluations and testing as a baseline to gauge future success. We evaluate complex cases in which children and individuals from ages 1-25 are reporting significant concerns about their adjustment to life in multiple settings.
