Our Approach

Dr Ferdico believes that knowledge is power. To understand how your child’s brain works allows you to uniquely support your child by helping them utilize their strengths to overcome any challenges they may currently be experiencing. Understanding if your child excels in visual or auditory learning, is an efficient learner, and has sufficient executive functioning skills allows Dr Ferdico to recommend ideal school placements, home routines and more. When intervention is needed, recommendations are based on the intricate knowledge of how your child’s brain functions best, so that you can support healthy development across home, school and community environments.
