Services Provided by The Yellin Center
The Yellin Center’s independent educational evaluation program will pinpoint the specific strengths and challenges affecting a student's learning. By deeply understanding how students learn, we can provide strategies and support to improve academic performance, increase self-confidence and develop success in school and in life.
Consultation and Second Opinion
A consultation at The Yellin Center can be a good first step for parents or older students who are not certain that an evaluation is necessary but are seeking a new perspective regarding a student's learning. Dr. Yellin also routinely works with families whose children were assessed elsewhere and who are confused about what it all means and what to do next.
Ongoing Support Services
The Yellin Center can provide support throughout your child's academic career, including progress monitoring, regular re-evaluation, advocacy, guidance, case management and other services.
Medication Management / Psychopharmacology
Dr. Yellin regularly provides consultations and ongoing management for children, adolescents, and young adults who are considering medication for treatment of attention deficit, anxiety, depression, and other emotional and behavioral concerns.
The Yellin Center will work with parents, school districts, and State Hearing Officers who are in need of an independent educational evaluation to be paid by a student's school district.
College Counseling and Transition Guidance Services
We offer consultation and support services for families who are beginning to consider life beyond high school. We can guide parents and students through the steps needed to begin this journey, offer support and guidance along the way, and help to ensure that each student finds an appropriate program to meet his or her needs and obtains the supports necessary for academic and personal success.
Our Director of Advocacy and Transition Services works with the families of students we assess, providing information and guidance about rights and procedures under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and Section 504 (of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973).
Services for Schools and Organizations
