ADHD, learning, autism and behavioural difficulties
The Clinic provides standardised neuropsychological assessments using clinical and computer based technologies. Treatment strategies include non-medication approaches (neurofeedback and cognitive training) as well as medication support with both stimulant and nonstimulant medication.
