I'm a clinical psychologist and child neuropsychologist. Most of my work involves learning and developmental evaluation with children; trying to understand how a child learns, and by extension, how to engage and teach that child in ways that best fit their learning. I work very extensively with ADHD, and extensively with Autism and Dyslexia too, plus childhood anxiety disorders -- though on a more fundamental level, the purpose is to get beyond the labels or disorders and to better explain how the child is thinking/learning/understanding or feeling, and given that, how to help him or her accordingly.
