Our Departments

Clinical Neuropsychology is a specialty that specializes in the assessment and treatment of the brain, by studying and assessing cognitive functioning as it relates to specific psychological processes and behaviors.

Learn more

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a process of studying and modifying behavior that can be very effective for many individuals with Autism and other developmental disorders. ABA involves changing the environment and monitoring changed responses from the child, to result in changed behavior or learning of life skills..

Learn more

Occupational Therapy is key in many Neurodevelopmental Disorders, since a majority of children have sensory-motor or sensory integration difficulties. Our Specialized Occupational Therapists work on helping the child with vestibular, proprioceptive and other sensory integration issues, as well as gross and fine motor skills.

Our Speech therapists work with children with Learning Disorders, Apraxias, Verbal Expressive difficulties such as often seen in Spectrum Disorders and everything in between.

Nutrition, Supplements and individualized medicine through genetic testing is an often overlooked part of a childs treatment. At Cogwheel we feel it is important to treat the whole child, and offer naturopathic services to help your child balance their food intake, sleep patterns, medicinal intake and regulate intestinal issues often seen in children on the Spectrum.

Our Social Skills Groups are offered in several age groups and help children cope with peers, frustration, handling emotions and knowing what is a big deal and what is not.

Whether a child is diagnosed with a Dyslexia, Dyscalculia or something such as slow processing speed, the end result is your child having to struggle in school, facing frustration, decreasing self-esteem, and an ever increasing gap between ability and performance. The correct evidence-based intervention can help rewire cognitive patterns so that your child struggles less, learns more easily, and starts reaching their potential without having to worker harder than others around them.
