Psychoeducational and Psychological Testing
A complete educational assessment typically involves six to eight hours of testing time over several visits, time for report writing and discussion of results with the student, parents and educators.
Academic Coaching helps students develop and strengthen essential organizational and time management skills, resulting in increased productivity, confidence and decreased stress. Academic Coaching is not subject matter tutoring, but the teaching of transferable skills that can be applied throughout a lifetime.
Our practice takes a conservative, evidence-based approach to prescribing medication for children and teens. Our goal is to use as little medication as possible for as short a period as possible. When appropriate, our physicians are open to “de-prescribing” – the thoughtful and deliberate process of discontinuing or reducing the dose of medications that may no longer be of benefit or eliminating medication that may be exacerbating a child’s emotional or behavioral concerns.
