Evaluation of children with deficient processing of information and behavioral regulation due to neurological or developmental issues. Functional deficits may include poor use of language, slowness, inappropriate behavior, as well as social and emotional challenges.
I meet with many families on a regular basis following assessment to ensure they are on-track with implementation of recommendations and meeting outcome goals.
Forensic neuropsychology services are often requested by plaintiff or defense attorneys or the court system when a young person involved in legal proceedings is suspected of having brain-related functional deficits.
Welcome, and thank you for your interest in neuropsychology (the science and study of brain-behavior relationships). I have been a practitioner of the healing arts since 1992, when I first opened the doors to my family natural health practice in Central Florida. Although I have since re-specialized in childhood neurological and developmental conditions, I continue to view each patient through a holistic lens that accounts for the various personal and environmental factors that may affect daily functioning. I also work closely with parents to provide remedial action plans that include practical, relevant recommendations.
I feel very blessed to be working with children in their formative years, because it is well-established that even small changes at a young age can result in significant transformations that affect later life. I place a high value on family collaboration, and regularly consult with the medical and educational professionals within our community. I currently perform clinical evaluations only at the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital main campus in Miami, but also conduct independent neuropsychological evaluations and medico-legal consultations in Broward and Palm Beach counties and other areas around the state.
I hope you find the material on this portal to be useful in your quest for knowledge that may help your child achieve his or her optimal level of functioning. I will be updating the site on a continual basis with more information, so please check back often.
