Are behavioral and learning goals a "slam dunk" for your child or is each day a struggle with behavioral outbursts, calls from school, low grades and the never ending lack of homework completion? Children often struggle when learning needs differ from instructional methods.in place. As a licensed clinical psychologist and school psychologist my practice fills a unique niche in today’s mental health field by unravelling the complex interactions between home and school that too often disrupt a family's daily life. Together we will partner to reduce stress by achieving goal success differently.
With a "unique learner" focus, the student with a specific learning disability, ADHD, autism, anxiety, oppositional behavior and other mental health needs, I partner with you to help navigate the special education maze to put in place academic services, accommodations, IEP goals, and other needed services provided under special education regulations: IDEA, ADA and 504 plans.
