Children are more than their problems, and evaluations need to be more than a means to a diagnostic label.  We believe that a comprehensive evaluation tells the story of a child’s strengths, weaknesses, and ways of approaching their world.  Once we understand the child, we are better able to provide appropriate interventions and supports that will help the child to grow and fulfill his or her potential.

“In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer” 
- Albert Camus

Any time a child struggles, he or she and the entire family can feel lost, hopeless and in despair.  Through the evaluation process, including meetings with the family, teachers and others who are involved with your child, we can help shine light on the issues that are impeding your child’s growth and provide guidance for treatment planning and practical problem solving at home, school, and in the community.  At the end of the evaluation, we will have more than just an accurate diagnosis; we will have a roadmap to help get your child back on track to succeed.   As a child psychologist with over 15 years of experience helping children and their families address challenges like autism, ADHD and learning disabilities, Dr. Kawa and her dynamic staff are uniquely qualified to show the way through the depths of a child’s winter to their invincible summer within.
