Family Member Quote
“I wish we had worked with Child Mind Institute years ago. Our therapist was able to cut through layers of unclear diagnoses and quickly identify a succinct, meaningful diagnosis with which to move forward. His understanding of complex children is unparalleled.”
“The therapists at Child Mind Institute genuinely understand how to use behavior modification in the home to influence changes in your child. Most of us roll our eyes at the idea of “parent training” but at Child Mind Institute, they make it meaningful and actionable. The team of therapists at the ADHD and Behavior Disorders Center helps your child to follow along with the rules-based, reward-based structure, while they help you to understand how to create a functional relationship with your child. It’s a game changer.”
“My son has had many different neuropsychological tests in Fairfield County, Westchester County and New York City, but many were equivocal about different aspects of his diagnoses. Others missed major diagnoses or failed to roll diagnoses up into a larger diagnosis. Child Mind Institute was the first to definitively document all three of his suspected diagnoses with no ambiguity.”
