Find Out What Is Really Going On And Learn How To Address It
Too often, students are blamed for not trying hard enough when in fact, they are already working as hard as they can…to accommodate for a specific learning difficulty.
A comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation (often called “neuropsych testing”) can help to evaluate an individual’s current level of overall functioning, and then isolate certain problem areas that might be interfering with their ability to be more successful.
A school-based evaluation often only describe the degree of difficulty a student is having. I can help you understand the WHY. And then make targeted recommendations for how to better support learning and life skills.
Deeply understanding WHY a student is struggling is the first important step — one that is often missing — in helping them thrive in school and in life.

I have had the pleasure of working with Jane as both a parent and a professional. Jane recently conducted a neuropsychological evaluation for my son and was incredibly easy to work with and exceptionally thorough. She explained every step of the process to my 13-year-old son and made him feel very comfortable with the process. Her evaluation report is easy to read and understand and offers a clear summary of her findings and concerns as well as detailed and discernable recommendations for how to address the challenges she identified. As a special education Advocate, I have worked frequently with Jane and value her ability to evaluate a student in a way that helps parents, schools, and other professionals who may work with the child understand the root cause of the issues so that appropriate services, supports, and instruction can be identified.

Dr. Jane was extraordinary in helping us understand our daughter’s unique brain functioning. She was warm and funny with our young daughter, and clear and compassionate with us. She provided appropriate language to use when communicating with the schools. Most importantly, she clarified the special gifts that our daughter brings to our lives!
