Talk to us.
We provide independent consultations and private treatments for teens.
We are tuned-in to teens’ academic and social interests.
All of our work is built upon treating teens with the dignity and autonomy they deserve as young adults
Our extensive training and experience allows us to provide an eclectic approach with a holistic perspective.
Teens seek our CONSULTATIONS for an honest and independent assessment.
We use understandable and meaningful terminology to describe teens’ strengths and weaknesses, and what can/should be done to do better.
We help teens communicate with their parents and teachers so everyone can become more helpful.
In TREATMENT, we listen to teens. No-one knows “you” better than “your-self.”
We work together with teens to develop effective strategies.
We motivate teens to want to succeed, and we make sure they achieve everything they can.
We are experienced and trained in working with teens with diagnoses like:
Apraxia / Articulation – we help teens produce clearer speech, sounding more intelligible and pleasing to themselves.
Attention Deficit Disorders (ADHD) – we help teens achieve greater attention with cognitive-behavioral strategies (learning skills like organization and time management), and we are comfortable discussing medications, exercise and alternative treatments to make sure teens do their best socially, at home and in school.
Autism (ASD) and Asperger’s Syndrome – we help teens develop social thinking skills. We recognize each teen’s individuality, their strengths and weaknesses. We work to maximize teens’ social success.
Auditory Processing Disorders (C/APD) – we help teens, their families and schools, to develop strategies for academic success in the face of auditory processing difficulties.
Dyslexia – We help teens. No matter long they’ve had trouble reading, to address and find success (and joy) in reading – online, magazines, books and texts (English / Hebrew)
Receptive / Expressive Language – we help teens develop strategies to promote better oral and written expression (word-retrieval, vocabulary, spelling, etc.) and better listening and reading comprehension.
Other learning disabilities – we use our training and experience to understand, engage and motivate teens with a wide range of learning profiles.
I was having trouble at school. Other tutors helped me do my homework, and sometimes they did it for me. Here it was different. I learned strategies how to do my own work – and it felt good! I used these strategies to finish high-school with better grades, and I now I use these same skills in college.
