I specialize in the assessment and treatment of learning difficulties, including those caused by AD/HD. My approach to academic difficulties goes beyond the limited information contained in a diagnosis. I identify the specific causes of learning problems that can be targeted with academic therapy or accommodations in the classroom. I provide detailed interventions and recommendations that target specific cognitive processes (e.g., working memory, processing speed, planning, organization, etc.), higher level language and comprehension skills, and basic academic skills required for efficient learning. I use the latest research on individual differences to tailor interventions.

Advances in the assessment and treatment of learning disabilities (AD/HD, Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia) outpace current standards of practice in primary care settings, schools, occupational, and speech-language therapy. Assessments using the latest research on intellectual, neurocognitive, and basic academic skills can identify specific causes of learning problems.

For example, the latest research and assessment methods can be used to identify deficits in higher-level language skills that can be used to design interventions that bridge the gap between speech-language therapy and reading achievement, and bridge the gap between occupational therapy and writing achievement.
