Your doctor can help you decide which type of evaluation is most appropriate for your needs whether it is:
- Learning Disability
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Post-Traumatic Stress
- Fitness For Duty
- Pearson Quotient
Dr. Ruggiero takes an integrative approach to incorporate medication into the treatment plan after other modalities have been tried, or by removing medication from the treatment plan. Dr. Ruggiero discusses treatment with other Serin Center providers to assess progress and uses cutting-edge quantitative data from Pearson’s Quotient system and other assessments to evaluate medication effectiveness rather than using only qualitative data to guess at progress. Titration off medication can be overseen by Dr. Ruggiero in conjunction with neurofeedback for better treatment incomes.
No longer is therapy just about talking and listening. Integrating neuropsychological findings into approaches can mean faster relief and spontaneous behavioral change. A consult with one of our experts can determine the recommended approach based on individual needs.
Dyslexia/Learning Disability Remediation
We use scientifically based programs and implement them in a way that has been shown in studies to change the brain in critical areas that improve reading, math disabilities, and writing disabilities
IEP/504 Plan Assistance
We can review IEP and 504 plans to assess if goals align with testing results, perform independent educational evaluations, consult with schools and districts, meet with parent advocates, and consult with attorneys regarding students’ educational needs.
Executive Functioning Coaching
Tailoring programs to target specific areas such as organization of materials, planning, breaking down tasks, and the ability to try new strategies can be an effective way to help children and adults with ADHD be more successful in meeting school or work demands.
Cogmed Working Memory Training
Working memory (mental control) can be an overlooked but critical function that underlies efficient learning and an ability to finish tasks without distraction. How we implement our program is just as important as the program itself and Dr. Serin has spoken at Pearson’s national conference to help train others on how to implement Cogmed to maximize results.
Using the most advanced technology, Dr. Serin’s approach to neurofeedback is the same used by Olympic athletes and top executives to improve brain functioning and performance. Because neurofeedback approaches can differ widely depending on the technology, application, and professional expertise, Dr. Serin consults with world experts in neurofeedback to continuously refine protocols for the best results for treating ADHD, addiction, compulsions, brain injuries, mood disorders, autism, and PTSD.
