At Stein Psychological Associates we use our assessments to guide practitioners to achieve successful outcomes.
At SPA, we view therapy as a collaborative process based on the relationship between an individual and a therapist within a supportive and safe environment. We apply the use of scientific methods to help individuals develop healthier, more effective ways of living. SPA offers brief, short-term as well as long-term treatment for individuals of all ages. We utilize an eclectic modality of therapy to provide each client with personalized treatment that fits his/her personality and treatment goals. Common referral reasons include: depression, anxiety, school-related problems, relationship problems, and difficulty with social skills.
Our Learning specialists use a variety of methods to address academic needs. For example, they use programs such as the Barton Reading & Spelling System which is an “Orton-Gillingham influenced simultaneously multi-sensory explicit and systematic phonics program” to teach phonetic awareness, reading, writing, and spelling skills. In addition, they use all kinds of games and songs to teach and reinforce executive functions, phonetic and reading skills. Lastly, they help to establish routines, setting expectations, and work on organization skills.
