Dr. DeCaria is one of the most respected and experienced private evaluators in New York City. She has co-authored numerous academic papers with faculty members at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and at Columbia University and New York State Psychiatric Institute.
Dr. DeCaria is going to share with you the resources she has used to help over a thousand families get an evaluation, and understand what the results mean for ADHD as well as other accompanying disorders. She will also give you the tools to identify which accommodations are appropriate for your child both at school and at home.
One of the reasons why I’m most excited to share Dr. DeCaria’s work is that she has proven her devotion to helping children and their families better understand and manage their developmental, academic, and emotional needs, and her work is immeasurably valuable for students with ADHD.
In order to receive a diagnosis of ADHD, parents will have to consult a qualified mental health professional. This could be an external evaluator, pediatrician, school psychologist, social worker, or any other large group of professionals qualified to make the diagnosis.
As an experienced evaluator who has worked with hundreds of families, Dr. DeCaria will be your guide as to what is an external evaluation, what best practices are for evaluating middle-school-age children for ADHD and other accompanying disorders, and what you can do about the results.
By the end of it, you will have the information, resources, and tools necessary to determine if getting an external evaluation is worth it for you and your child.
