CHILD AND ADOLESCENT THERAPY

First, Dr. LoPinto will provide a comprehensive diagnostic assessment that involves the following:

  • Conducting diagnostic interviews with the child, the child’s parents, and the 

    child’s teachers

  • Completing the Assessment of Lagging Skills and Unsolved Problems (ALSUP) with parents

  • Obtaining a comprehensive developmental, medical, mental, social/behavioral, and academic history

  • Reviewing any previous educational, psychological, or neurological testing

  • Using rating scales, questionnaires, and checklists completed by the child, parents, and/or teachers

  • Observations of the child across settings

Then, based on the identification of your child’s difficulties, the following skills training strategies may be suggested when solving problems collaboratively with your child:

  • Coping skills

  • Self-control/self-regulation

  • Anger management

  • Planning and organizing time and space

  • Focus and attention

  • Working memory

  • Study skills

  • Relaxation and coping thoughts

  • Social skills

  • Self-monitoring skills
