Neuropsychology and Education Services for Children & Adolescents (NESCA) is a multidisciplinary private practice specializing in the evaluation and treatment of children with a range of neurological, learning, attentional and developmental disabilities, including autism spectrum disorders. With twelve doctoral-level clinicians, NESCA offers neuropsychological and psycho-diagnostic evaluation, projective and IQ testing, psychotherapy and yoga-based, mind-body integration therapy. An experienced specialist in transition planning coordinates assessment, both on-site and community-based, and assists families as adolescents and young adults with disabilities, including autism spectrum disorders, move into adulthood. A BCBA observes school programs, produces Functional Behavior Assessments and develops Behavioral Support Plans.

NESCA also publishes an informative blog, NESCA News & Notes, on which material of interest to the special needs community appears, and parent programs are announced.
