1- Neuropsychological Assessment

Comprehensive assessment of neurodevelopmental disorders for children, adolescents, and adults. This assessment covers all main cognitive and learning areas, such as general intellectual abilities, oral and written language, visuospatial/visuomotor, attention, executive functions, learning, and memory. It allows ruling out any neurodevelopmental disorder, identifying areas of strengths and weaknesses, and recommending specific accommodations/interventions to help patients overcome their daily difficulties in or outside the school setting. Some of the disorders assessed include: Specific Learning Disorders (e.g. Dyslexia, Dyscalculia), Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD), Language Disorder, Developmental Coordination Disorder, Autism, Intellectual Disability, and Global Developmental Delay.

2- Evaluation of students who would benefit from accommodations on international examinations (e.g., IB, SATs, GRE…)

Students may be entitled to different accommodations when they present with specific impairments. This assessment allows to determine needed exam accommodations.

3- Dynamic Assessment

The Dynamic Assessment is conducted to identify the skills that students possess as well as their learning potential. It is an interactive, process-oriented, and fluid approach in which students play an active role.

4- Cognitive Abilities Profile (CAP)

The CAP is designed for consultation and observation of the cognitive functioning of a learner, that is, the thinking process involved in a variety of learning and problem-solving activities. The CAP is designed to help identify how learners are able or less able to use their cognitive abilities, in order to inform intervention, which can lead to improvements in functioning.

5- Intervention sessions

One-on-one or groups sessions with patients to improve their attention and executive functioning skills. Some of the skills targeted include time management, prioritizing skills, organizational skills, and note taking.

6- Follow-up Consultation Sessions

Consultation sessions with teachers and/or parents to assess students’ response to intervention, collaborate with teachers to create an individualized educational plan based on the students’ strengths and weaknesses, and provide evidence-based recommendations.

7- Training:

Offering training and supervision for licensed psychologists, teachers, and parents. This can be done through face-to-face or on-line. A wide range of topics can be addressed e.g. learning disorders, attention problems, and interventions to support students with neurodevelopmental disorders.
