for the following conditions:


Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a common childhood brain disorder that can continue into adolescence and adulthood, in some cases having an indirect, yet significant impact on academic performance and interpersonal interactions.

Autism Spectrum Disorder

Is not a single disorder, but a spectrum of disorders with shared symptoms including difficulties with flexible behavior, communication, empathy and social skills.

Concussion & Traumatic Brain Injury

Head injury can result in traumatic brain injury (TBI) which can trigger symptoms impacting functioning, learning, mental and physical energy, behavior and mood.


Epilepsy is caused by abnormal brain activity and can impact brain functioning at different levels depending on individual medical history and treatment.

Genetic Syndromes

Genetic Syndromes form a large and diverse array of physical and behavioral characteristics that vary in terms of impact on learning, functioning and interpersonal interactions.

Late Effects Cancer Treatment

In the years following cancer treatment (e.g., chemotherapy, radiation and surgical resection), individuals can experience cognitive and/or behavioral difficulties.

Learning & Language Disorder

Communication disorders include problems with speech, language and auditory processing, which can have significant impact on reading, writing and functioning within the traditional classroom setting, work environment, as well as the quality of interpersonal interactions.

Mood Difficulties

Anxiety can enhance or hinder performance, in part depending on coping strategies. Symptoms of depression include low energy, lack of interest, social withdrawal and cognitive difficulties.

Performance Anxiety

Performance Anxiety is a significant factor in the classroom and on the field. Short-term, goal-focused psychotherapeutic support can assist the individual in developing more effective coping skills and optimizing performance.

Prematurity & Low Birth Weight

Newborns that weigh less than 5.5lbs and/or have exposure to toxins in utero are at risk for health and behavioral problems at later stages of development.

Spina Bifida

Spina bifida meningomyelocele is the most common neurodevelopmental disorder in North America and can be a risk factor for cognitive and learning difficulties.


Stroke occurs when blood supply to the brain is interrupted or reduced, resulting in deprivation of oxygen and nutrients, which can lead to cell death and impact brain functioning.
