Mental Health Services directed towards Children:

Assessment/Treatment:

  • Giftedness
  • Autism
    We provide the initial assessment as well as Analysis (ABA) and Intensive Behavioral Intervention (IBI) that involves a comprehensive program for teaching children linguistic, cognitive, social and daily functional skills.
Psychoeducational:

When your child is struggling academically despite your efforts and the schools attempts for remediation, a psychoeducational assessment will help to find out the underneath causes for such difficulties.

The psychoeducational assessment consists of standardized psychological measure that will look into your child’s cognitive abilities (some examples: intelligence, memory, processing speed, visuo-motor skills, planning and organization) and academic skills( some examples: reading, spelling, writing, oral language, expressive-receptive language, mathematical skills).

After completion of the test the psychologist will meet with you and your child for a feedback session and provide you with a copy of the report. Recommendations will be made for school programming and placements if necessary.

Functional Behavior Assessment:

There are many reasons “why” a child misbehave. The FBA identifies significant social, affective, cognitive and environmental factors associated and the ocurrence (and non-ocurrence) of specific behaviors.
Our behavior therapist will provide a observation session in home, daycare, or school and parenting training.

Parents will learn appropriate strategies in dealing with the difficult behaviors.

Playtherapy:

Therapeutic modality employed with children ages 3 through 11 and provides a way for them to express their experiences through a natural, self-guided and self-healing process.
The goal of playtherapy is to prevent and resolve psychological challenges. It is also used as a diagnostic tool.
