Evaluation Services

I have completed thousands of psychological, psychoeducational and neuropsychological evaluations with school-age children, adolescents, college students and adult clients. I specialize in diagnosing learning disabilities, including dyslexia, ADHD, language-based learning problems, autistic spectrum disorders, anxiety and mood disorders, and other social/emotional challenges. I feel strongly in creating a home/school partnership through cooperative advocacy, rather than creating an acrimonious relationship between parents and school districts. As an experienced educational psychologist and CSE/504 chairperson, I help families through the process of evaluating their child, identifying recommendations for support services, developing an intervention action plan, and advocating for school and/or private interventions and supports.

I do not utilize a standard, “one size fits all” assessment process. Every diagnostic evaluation is custom tailored to answer the specific referral questions suggested by parent and teacher concerns, as well as the student’s school records. Given my breadth of experience, I have expertise in completing assessments in the following areas:

  • Cognitive abilities and information processing
  • Memory functions
  • Reading, writing and mathematics abilities
  • Attention and executive functions
  • Social and emotional development
  • Sensory, motor, visual and perceptual development
  • Neurological and neuropsychological functioning
