About Us

Management of learning, developmental, or behavioral difficulties can be difficult. Seemingly unrelated factors can combine to impact the child’s development, behavior, and social relationships. Performing evaluations with the whole child in mind help formulate and manage the best intervention plan, providing access to existing resources, and improving the family’s quality of life.
