Child & Adolescent Psychologicical Evaluations
As an experienced child psychologist, I focus on all children from preschool to college age. Working with the child/adolescent, the parents or family, and other professionals, I use a number of child psychology and adolescent psychology intervention methods to analyze and understand the patient, set realistic goals, and facilitate positive change.
Give your child the best help in coming to terms with difficulties they may be faced with at school or help them learn the essential skills to deal with their personal challenges.
Much pressure is placed on children these days, and they may not always be equipped to handle it. By teaching them the necessary skills and having them verbalize their problems, they grow emotionally, behaviorally, and cognitively.
Through child psychology and adolescent psychology therapeutic interventions, I help children and adolescents understand themselves and learn the best way to handle challenges in their lives, both at home and at school.
I provide evaluations for disorders including Autism Spectrum Disorders, learning disorders (dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia), ADHD, executive functioning deficits, and behavioral evaluations. For accurate evaluations, I gather detailed information from the child/adolescent, the parents or family, and other professionals involved. The evaluation is tailored toward the suspected or known disability and/or the referral issue.
Consultation and psychotherapy are prescribed for children and adolescents dealing with anxiety, stress, depression, behavioral issues, Autism Spectrum Disorders, learning disabilities, emotional issues, and school-related issues. Child psychology goes a long way toward improving the functioning of the individual child.
