Dr. Bahador offers parent consultations, including:
Assessment and/or treatment planning: Dr. Bahador provides consultations with parents who need guidance regarding how to optimally address their child's
educational and/or or psychological needs, including offering recommendations for specific interventions or an assessment. Consultations can include a parent interview, a brief assessment with the child or adolescent, a review of academic, psychological and/or IEP records, and a discussion about educational and treatment planning. Dr. Bahador is also available to consult with other professionals and educators regarding a child’s learning and/or social-emotional needs. Dr. Bahador offers valuable guidance to parents so their child/adolescent can function optimally academically, socially, emotionally and behaviorally. Referrals to other specialists are also provided, as needed.
Educational/School placement consultations: Dr. Bahador has worked with most of the private and public schools on the Westside of Los Angeles. She guides parents to find the “optimal fit” between a student’s learning profile, in addition to their social and emotional needs, with specific educational programs. Conducting an IQ test with a student is usually the first step in this process to obtain information about their various intellectual skills, in addition to their social, emotional and behavioral functioning (obtained from behavioral observations during the testing process and from parent's report).
Parenting education and training (i.e., interventions for children with ADHD or other social, emotional and/or behavioral problems)
Participation in school/IEP meetings (after an assessment is conducted)
