At RNBC, we value the fact that every child is different. We know that every child’s goals will be different as well. We strive for solutions that make the best use of the child’s interests and abilities, that permit a child to work toward an objective, feel a sense of accomplishment, and expand the possibilities for the future. As such, when we talk with parents about their children for the first time, in addition to discussing the challenges they are facing, we ask: What is your child good at? What do you like about your child? What are your child’s strengths? These questions are not asked in an attempt to make a worried parent feel better. We hope to elicit information about the child’s strengths that will serve as the foundation for growth and development.

At RNBC, we treat children with issues that arise when a child faces challenges that are difficult to cope with. These problems often cause social, emotional, academic, and behavioral difficulties. Common challenges that children are facing include:

  • Focusing attention
  • Doing well in school
  • Forming relationships
  • Making friends
  • Regulating behavior
  • Functioning effectively

Brain-based disabilities not only interfere with the performance of specific tasks, they sometimes mask who a child really is. We work to overcome, circumvent, compensate for, and outwit social-emotional learning issues. Most of all, we strive to help the child on the path to establishing and enjoying an authentic sense of self and self-esteem.

Diagnoses We Typically Cover Through Assessment and Intervention:

  • Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)
  • Language Disorders
  • Social Pragmatic Communication Disorder
  • Specific Learning Disorders (Reading, Math, and Writing Disorders)
  • Nonverbal Learning Disorder (NVLD)
  • Executive Function Disorder
  • Anxiety and Depression Disorders
  • Tourette’s Syndrome

We also provide neuropsychological evaluations for children facing medical challenges such as:

  • Epilepsy
  • Hydrocephalus
  • Pediatric Cancer
  • Fragile X
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Pediatric Concussion

because we know that all kids with challenges have strengths to build on.
