What Sets Us Apart

Doctors at Hassenfeld Children's Hospital of New York at NYU Langone diagnose learning disorders and provide support to children in preschool and elementary, middle, and high school. Our neuropsychologists consider a variety of factors that can affect learning skills—including brain development, the learning environment, and medical or psychiatric conditions, such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder—before making a diagnosis and recommending treatments that suit a child’s needs.

Given the lifelong nature of learning disorders, our doctors also diagnose and support young adults with these conditions.

Treatment at NYU Langone

Our learning experts identify specific therapies or support opportunities that may help your child to function better. Our doctors use this information to help develop or revise your child’s individualized education program (IEP) at school, make referrals to therapists, and partner with your child’s teachers and school officials to ensure your child receives the assistance he or she needs.
