Neuropsychology Intervention (ages 6-17)


Neuropsychological intervention aims to help children and adolescents with developmental issues (e.g., ADHD, learning disorders, intellectual disabilities) or medical conditions (e.g., concussions, cardiac problems, epilepsy) to improve their daily functioning. Individuals and families navigating developmental and medical differences often struggle with condition-specific issues in addition to the challenges all families face. Parents try their best but may feel ill-equipped to provide for their child and help them succeed. It is recommended, but not mandatory, that new clients come to their first session having already completed a neuropsychological or psycho-educational assessment.
