I wanted you to know that we finally reached a comprehensive agreement with our school district for (our son’s) case. While many people made this happen, we are chiefly indebted to you. Your skilled analysis at each step made it possible for us to credibly demonstrate his needs. Additionally, though, your testing and thoughtful analysis has done more than anything to help us, as parents, understand how (our son’s) brain sees the world. For this, we can never repay you.

A grateful parent

Over the last 10 years, you have consistently been a source of support and advice, rescuing the most difficult situations. You have always accommodated my needs to fit within your hectic schedule. Words cannot express my appreciation.

Parent - Arlington, MA

NESCA (Neuropsychology & Education Services for Children & Adolescents) is most highly regarded throughout the region. NESCA’s outreach and community service programs are outstanding. Throughout, Ann’s leadership is evident in terms of quality control and attention to the client’s unique needs. In summary, I heartily recommend Dr. Helmus as a professional who understands the complexity of children with various learning and social/emotional challenges. She is a master of helping parents understand how to help their children.

If you’re looking for a thorough and comprehensive transition assessment and/or consult on other options, try NESCA. They are pricey, but worth it and do excellent follow up consulting with Teams. If you don’t need the whole bundle, they can help with recommending other appropriate evaluators.
