Our Specialization

We specialize in providing neuropsychological evaluations to children ages 4+, adolescents, and young adults. We’re located just south of Los Angeles in Hermosa Beach, California. 

Why Us

A neuropsychological evaluation is often utilized when an individual’s difficulties are not well understood, interventions have been unsuccessful or misguided, and parents are left frustrated and confused.

Our specialization is in pediatric disorders with advanced training. We take time to get to know the patients' backgrounds, build rapport, and collaborate with other professionals and school staff.
