SOAR Psychotherapy & Testing

 

Summer Camp

This summer, the SOAR Program for Psychotherapy & Testing is excited to offer a virtual camp program.

Given the impact of COVID-19, we know many parents are struggling to support their children’s distance learning. We also know many children are exhibiting new or increased challenging behaviors. Dr. Halpern presented about this topic for xMinds. While the presentation was specifically intended for parents with children on the Autism Spectrum, the contents are likely to be helpful for supporting both neurodiverse and neurotypical children. Please feel free to explore both the presentation and outline provided.

The SOAR Program 

Welcome to The SOAR Program! We are a team of highly trained, licensed psychologists and psychotherapists providing therapy and testing services. SOAR is inclusive and welcoming to all. Our neurodiversity affirmative psychologists and psychotherapists provide empathic therapy for children, adolescents, and adults, including individual, group, parenting, couples, and family support. The SOAR Program’s licensed psychologists also offer comprehensive testing services, including: neuropsychological, psychological (including social-emotional), psychoeducational, developmental, giftedness (including ‘2E’), and admissions testing. Our SOAR team meets with some patients for preliminary intake to help guide treatment planning. We offer ‘next steps’ written reports and case management to coordinate care and to help determine a ‘roadmap’ for those who wish for such support.

The Testing Process

 Your psychologist will work one-on-one with you, or your child/teen, for the duration of the testing process. We believe that rapport and observation are paramount to proper assessment and diagnosis, as is experience and expertise. As such, we do not rely on students, associates, or techs to complete testing. Read more
