Clinical and Child Psychologist in Boca Raton Florida
We evaluate and treat all school-related and behavioral child/adolescent issues. This includes learning disabilities, attention deficit disorders, OCD, anxiety, nonverbal learning disabilities, Asperger's and all high-functioning Autism Spectrum Disorders.
Having been in Boca Raton for 29 years, and a FAU adjunct, we have a relationship with most area public and private schools. This includes Broward and Palm Beach Public Schools and private schools like Saint Andrews and Pine Crest or those in the Catholic Diocese or linked to the Jewish Federation. We regularly see people from Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, Deerfield, and as far away as Wellington, Coral Springs and Weston. We facilitate placement via helping with decisions about specific schools and use of IEP/504 or other accommodations. This extends from elementary school to college.
Many times schools delay assessments. A full evaluation is often done as a last resort when it can be pre-emptive to underachievement or low-self-esteem due to it. Our testing is a very reliable method capable of detecting the causes of any school-related or behavioral issue.
The evaluation is customized to the problems presented, meaning we do not use a "one size fits all" evaluation process. I will thoroughly understand the child's personal and academic faults and strengths PLUS the parent's need to change their approach. The latter means that if your child is overindulged or underdisciplined, I will tell you and recommend alternative methods.
I meet personally with parents to review test results and discuss treatment plans (called the gameplan), in a no-nonsense straight-talk manner. We also connect with area doctors and schools. School advocacy is recommended when appropriate. This means I will go into the school with you to push for your child's needs.
