Are you looking for a clinical psychology practice that provides a comprehensive psychoeducational evaluation experience which integrates research-based state-of-the-art assessment with an empathic, collaborative, and responsive approach? Understanding Minds is pleased to help you with your evaluation needs.
Pursuing an evaluation is often stressful and full of unknowns. For children, adolescents, and young adults in the Atlanta metro area, my Understanding Minds practice takes the mystery out of the evaluation process and commits to a careful understanding of the student's strengths and challenges. Understanding Minds psychoeducational evaluations are based on the School Neuropsychology model; my assessments yield a unique profile of students' strengths and challenges in skill areas that contribute to school success. I commonly evaluate whether students are experiencing learning disorders (reading, math, and/or written language), ADHD, anxiety or mood disorders, autism, or other behavioral, emotional, or social difficulties. Based on the evaluation data, I provide you evidence-based recommendations that are customized for the student.
You're probably seeking an evaluation for your student because your student's school or teacher has alerted you to a challenge or a problem. At Understanding Minds I pay attention to students' strengths. To get the full picture I want to comprehend what's going well and what's not.
My strengths-and-challenges approach helps me comprehend your student's individual, unique profile. You will come away with a detailed report and recommendations written in plain language, not a one-line diagnosis.
You'll begin to see a path forward for you and your student with evidence-based, personalized plans for interventions, strategies, and accommodations. I use my expertise established through working with hundreds of students and from years of continuing education experience in the state-of-the-art of School Neuropsychology.
