Narrative

For over 30 years, Susan Brefach has been providing comprehensive, accurate evaluations for children with a wide range of special needs.  Evaluations include neuropsychological, educational, and psychological assessments.  She works with children ages 4-adult, with a wide range of difficulties including developmental delay, autism spectrum disorders, learning disabilities including dyslexia and dyscalculia, ADD/ADHD, social/emotional problems, anxiety and mood disorders, communication problems, and other difficulties that interfere with school success.  Dr Brefach is unusual in that she regularly does follow-up and advocacy for children she tests.  She attends school meetings, evaluates school programs, and testifies at mediations and due process hearings.  Her clients come from the New England area as well as overseas (referred by private schools for evaluation and follow-up).

Dr. Brefach is the author of No Parent Left Behind: Navigating the Special Education Universe, available from Amazon or through her website.  THis readable guide for parents provides a roadmap to help them identify areas of difficulty, get the best evaluations, and work with professionals to advocate for the services their children need to succeed in school and in life.
