INI’s aim is to assess and treat cognitive, emotional and behavioral issues in children and adolescents in such a way that allows for examining the “whole” child; that is, not only who they are and why they do what they do, but also how their family, school, diet, sleep, environment, culture and society in general influence him or her. Since you know your child better than anyone, we take the time to listen to not only your concerns but also your ideas as to why those concerns are there in the first place; at INI, you take an active role in your child’s examination and treatment. Here’s a quick summary of the services that we provide:

We also take a closer look at your child’s emotional functioning and behavior. Typically takes 4 hours. A written report and 60-minute feedback session are provided afterwards.
Psychological Evaluation: This involves a 60-to-90-minute interview with you and your child, and testing that measures your child’s mental aptitude [known as IQ], academic skills, emotional functioning and behavior. Typically takes 2-3 hours. A written report and 30-minute feedback session are provided afterwards.
Behavior Assessment: Identification and analysis of 1 or more problem behaviors to determine their function, which then leads to identifying appropriate strategies that can be used to successful behavior modification and management.
