Happy friends celebrating the success with high five

Our Philosophy

The clinic was founded on the principles of integrity and mutual trust.  We believe in providing the highest quality care using scientifically validated testing instruments.  However, a good assessment is more than just an analysis of test scores.  Every child is unique, and our approach embraces neurodiversity while recognizing the need for interventions that promote wellbeing.   Finally, our evaluations are culturally and linguistically appropriate with bilingual staff that can accommodate Spanish and Russian speakers.

Meet the Team

Our staff is friendly and approachable.  Each of us has received training at the UCLA Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at the David Geffen School of Medicine.  We are all PEERS® certified, and most are bilingual.  Click here for more about our team.
