About Alena

Greetings,

I am a behavioral specialist and a NYS-licensed psychologist who provides in-home coaching sessions for children with ADHD. Extensive research on ADHD shows that these individuals display a weakness in the area of executive functioning, defined as a set of mental skills that are necessary for goal-driven behavior. Executive functions include the ability to initiate and terminate behavior, to monitor and change behavior as needed, to plan future behavior, to switch between various tasks, to maintain focus on task, and many other abilities. Despite the fact that ADHD affects executive functioning of an individual, it is possible to train your child to cope with distraction, complete academic and other tasks, and regulate his or her behavior.

Contact me for details on assessment and training process.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ADD/ADHD

I have years of experience treating children with ADD/ADHD at an outpatient mental health center, and I can provide instruction to these children and adolescents that accounts for their unique needs.
