Work with Children & Teens
A large number of kids in his practice have problems in at least one of these areas: ADHD/ADD, Depression, Anxiety, Anger, School Failure, and Learning Disabilities. He also treats Encopresis.
He takes a number of referrals from physicians who want a psychological evaluation prior to medication treatment.
When kids are suspected of having ADHD or ADD He routinely uses the Test of Variables of Attention-8 (TOVA-8) to help understand the extent of the problem and provide feedback to the physician about the effectiveness of medication. The goal is to work as a team to get it "just right" - not too much and not too little.
