Our Approach for Your Child's Success
Our practice focuses on the special needs and issues faced by children and adolescents. Through comprehensive psychoeducational evaluation, we identify a student's learning and behavioral strengths and challenges in order to develop appropriate interventions. Since all school psychologists in our group have experience working within the public school system, we understand the referral and evaluation process for Exceptional Student Education (ESE) Services. We are also familiar with the expectations of student performance (Sunshine State Standards).
Our Approach to Learning Issues
We begin with an in-depth analysis of your child's intellectual abilities, academic strengths and challenges, and learning styles. An assessment of your child's abilities encompasses the functions of the brain that affect learning and performance (e.g. memory, language, attention, ability to organize information, etc.). Using this information, we assist you and your child in understanding how he or she learns. We then develop appropriate interventions that are easily understood by parents and teachers. Additionally, we can serve as consultants or advocates during meetings at your child's school.
Our Approach to Behavioral Concerns
Our group uses a similar approach for addressing behavioral concerns, whether they are exhibited at home or at school. We work to identify the causes of these concerns, and recommend intervention strategies that are tailored to meet your child's needs. These strategies provide parents and teachers with a proactive means to minimize problematic behaviors. Interventions can help with a variety of issues (e.g. attention problems, defiance, depression, anxiety, etc.).
