I have specialty training from Children's Hospital Boston/Harvard Medical School in the assessment and treatment of infants and preschool-aged children, as well as the assessment of neurodevelopmental and behavioral disorders, including autism spectrum disorders, intellectual disabilities, learning disabilities, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and social-emotional difficulties.
I am a developmental neuropsychologist who specializes in diagnostic evaluations and therapy with infants, toddlers, preschool and school aged children (ages 0-10). I believe that a thorough neuropsychological evaluation leads to proper intervention which can help a child overcome a wide range of developmental, behavioral, and learning problems. I will walk you hand in hand through the evaluation and treatment process and follow your child over time to ensure that he/she makes progress and doesn't "fall through the cracks." I will develop a treatment plan for your child and help parents, providers, and teachers put services into place and recommendations into action.
