A graduate of Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology (MSPP), Dr. McCormick completed a two-year, postdoctoral neuropsychological training program at Children’s Evaluation Center following a one-year internship. He has been working in the service of children and adolescents for over ten years.
Dr. McCormick, a senior clinician at NESCA, sees children, adolescents and young adults with a variety of presenting issues, including Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD), dyslexia and non-verbal learning disability. He has expertise in Asperger’s Disorder, a mild form of autism, and has volunteered at the Asperger’s Association of New England (AANE).
Dr. McCormick mainly sees individuals ranging from age 10 through the college years, and he has a particular interest in the often difficult transition between high school and college. Over the years of working with children and families, he has helped advocate for children through participation in team meetings, mediations and pre-hearing conferences.
As part of his work with older students, Dr. McCormick is very familiar with the documentation requirements of standardized testing boards, including those overseeing the SAT, GMAT, LSAT and GRE. He also holds an advisory and consultative role with a prestigious local university, assisting in the provision of appropriate academic accommodations to their students with learning disabilities and other issues complicating their education.
