Psychological & Neuropsychological Evaluations

Comprehensive psychological evaluations may examine intelligence, social emotional functioning, and behavioral patterns to clarify a diagnosis or help inform treatment planning. Psychological evaluations can also be performed for medical clearance or other proceedings.  
Neuropsychological evaluations are conducted to help people better understand how they learn and think. They can be used to rule in and out certain conditions like ADHD, learning disorders, executive functioning problems, and psychological and behavioral challenges associated with medical conditions and other disabilities.

Functional Behavior Assessments (FBA)

A Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) is an evidenced based approach to better understanding why people behave the way that they do. Sometimes children with autism engage in behaviors that are unsafe or difficult to manage. An FBA will use a combination of assessment methods like interviews, observations, rating scales, and direct assessments, to better understand the environmental variables that maintains someone’s behavior. An FBA is critical for developing an effective Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP) and can be helpful for general treatment recommendations.

Receiving a first-time diagnosis of autism for yourself or a loved one can be a confusing and, in many ways, a new and exciting time. Some clients seek consultation to better understand their own diagnosis or their child’s diagnosis, to better understand what community services someone might be entitled to, and for academic/educational consultation. With backgrounds in special education, clinical psychology, and behavior therapy, I am able to harness various experiences to help individuals and families navigate many challenges that they may face.
