Testimonials

“Claudia just completed a neuro-psych evaluation for our son. She did a very thorough and thoughtful job, taking time to cover all the bases in order to make an accurate diagnosis that weighed a lot of interacting factors and life context. I really appreciated the way she made a diagnosis while acknowledging that not all the evidence is in — that time can change things and that there are possibilities for change and revaluation after our son has had more time to learn and to apply his learning over a more significant amount of time. I also appreciated her realism about the way that IEPs work in schools and the fact that she focused on ways that our son’s needs would be best met by the system with certain language in place, while acknowledging that that same language might need to change with future re-evaluation. The final report and diagnoses were incredibly helpful and confirming, and she gave us good advice about specific help our son would need; resources we could investigate in our role as parents; and referrals for local therapists. I highly recommend her evaluation process for anyone with kids who have suspected learning disabilities; and anyone with foster or adopted kids who have a history of trauma, neglect or abuse.” – V.A., June 2011
