  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Visual-Motor Integration Disorder
  • Executive Functioning Disorder
  • Auditory Processing Disorder
  • Nonverbal Learning Disability

  • Depression
  • Pervasive Developmental Disorders (e.g., Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome)

Each of our personalized assessments objectively measure, explore, and identify an individual’s strengths and weaknesses to aid in diagnosis and treatment planning. Our psychologists will work with you to determine which type of evaluation is most appropriate for your child/adolescent.
