Assessment: Theresa utilizes a strengths-based approach in her psycho-educational evaluations. She is very experienced in the assessment of neurodevelopmental and learning disorders in children and adolescents. Her evaluations provide an in-depth view of a child’s cognitive abilities, learning style, academic achievement, as well as social-emotional and behavioral functioning to build a holistic picture of the child’s functioning and capabilities across all settings. Theresa has also been trained in conducting the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS). Theresa’s feedback and assessment reports provide individualized recommendations for guiding education planning, an intervention plan for remediating areas of academic difficulty, and parent- and teacher-focused strategies to support behavioral challenges that may be impacting learning outcomes. She also works closely with learning support teams to develop personalized curriculum paths and individual education plans (IEPs) to support children with additional learning, behavioral and/or extension needs.
Therapy: Theresa is experienced in doing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with children and adolescents. She works with children with Anxiety, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, and children who struggle with emotion regulation and social thinking. Furthermore, Theresa has been trained in conducting Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT). Theresa also conducts Behavioral Therapy and Exposure Therapy with children diagnosed with Selective Mutism.
