James Goodlad, PhD
James specializes in testing for children ranging from 3 to 18 years, including the evaluation of cognitive and intellectual abilities (IQ), academic achievement testing and learning differences, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and disruptive behavior disorders. James is also trained to provide empirically-supported evaluations for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) using “gold standard” measures. In addition to assessment James also enjoys helping children build skills and self-efficacy in behavior management, social skills, and social problem-solving.
