Care and Support Updates

Updates on the latest clinical offerings from our centers in New York City and the San Francisco Bay Area.

March 27, 2023

Learning disabilities are often diagnosed when a child is having serious trouble with a specific academic skill or subject, like math or reading. Having a learning disability doesn’t mean that a child isn’t trying hard in school. Studies have shown that these conditions are real brain differences, and kids who have them can excel with the right instruction.

In order to identify the underlying concern, an evaluation of your child’s learning profile should be conducted. Evaluations help determine a child’s strengths and weaknesses and provide recommended support to help them thrive in the classroom. Our team of educational specialists can treat these conditions and help a child overcome learning struggles.

If you are concerned about your child or would like to schedule an evaluation in New York or California, please reach out to us todayOur San Mateo, CA office has recently expanded and has immediate appointment availability.

Neuropsychological and Educational Evaluations

The Child Mind Institute provides evaluations for students ages 5 to 25. Our clinical experts review the child’s skills and abilities in many domains, including intellectual functioning and reasoning abilities, learning and memory, visual processing, listening comprehension, and verbal expression. We also evaluate executive skills like planning, organization, time management, and concentration.

Improving Behavior in the Classroom


Improving Behavior in the Classroom

Child behavior experts say that the best way for teachers to manage behavior in the classroom is through praise. This might seem unlikely, and it may not come naturally. When we see kids acting out or doing something disruptive, it’s natural to point that out. But research shows that paying more attention to the behaviors you do want to see is ultimately a more effective strategy.
