Are you concerned about your child’s school performance? Do you feel your child has learning challenges or problems staying focused and paying attention? Has there been a history of behavior problems or lack of social skills? Our behavior therapy clinic is focused on understanding the connection between brain and behavior. Changes in the brain could affect the individual’s ability to pay attention, process and remember information, or solve problems. Changes in the brain can impact cognitive, behavioral, and social-emotional functioning.
IQ Testing for School Admission
Some private schools require IQ testing as part of their admissions process. Dr. Simone provides IQ testing (WPPSI-IV or WISC-V) for children ages 2:6 and older.
You may have concerns regarding your child’s learning difficulties, attention and concentration, academic achievement performance, or behavior issues.
Psychotherapy is a way to help you and your family to cope with emotional difficulties and daily life struggles or concerns.
