Academic problems can be very difficult to deal with and identifying the factors contributing to the academic problems can be complicated. Is it the student, the school, a learning disability, ADHD, emotional problems, oppositionality, a lack of academic skills, a neurological problem, or a lack of good study habits? In addition to individual and family therapy, I also provide neuro/psycho/educational assessments for elementary school, middle school, high school, college, and graduate school students (e.g., law school, medical school) to assess the student’s strengths and weaknesses and help develop a plan for success. Sometimes a full assessment isn’t necessary and some adjustments in the way the student is doing homework can help lead to the student’s success. I first consult with the student and/or family members to understand what the problems are, determine what the most economical and practical solutions are, then develop a treatment plan to review together, start off with a screening if testing is indicated, then discuss whether a full assessment is required. Dealing with academic problems can be tough so I help individuals to succeed in school, enjoy their educational experience, and see a brighter future.
