More about us:
The Weaver Center, LLC in Wayland, MA, utilizes a strength-based approach to provide custom evaluations and treats individuals with school challenges, attention problems, educational, learning, psychological, behavioral and social difficulties. Individualized services include neuropsychological testing, educational testing, social, self-confidence emotional [projective] testing, counseling, school advocacy, tutoring, personal coaching and/or self-advocacy training. We have provided high quality services in one location for over 20 years. The Center was designed to provide well-coordinated services, as needed, in one location.
The Center was founded in 1985 to improve the success of children and adults with learning and attentional differences. The objectives and direction evolved from Dr. Weaver's personal experiences of living with dyslexia, attentional, learning, organization and self-esteem difficulties. He has assembled a multidisciplinary team of professionals who specialize in the development of effective interventions based on four cornerstones.
We can identify the specific reasons for a student having more difficulty than what would be expected from his or her age and intelligence. A thorough understanding of a student's strengths and challenges demystifies and clarifies, with objective data, why a student is struggling and, more importantly what to do about it. The Weaver Center specializes in developing compensatory strategies for difficulties such as struggling with grades, time and homework management, study and organization skills and underachievement. Some of the areas that we have developed the evaluations and treatment for include ADHD, attention and executive function and learning problems.
Therapy: The Weaver Center clinicians provide cognitive strategies and therapy for individual adults, adolescents, children, couples and families in their areas of specialty. These include: self-esteem, self-advocacy, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, anger management, parenting, couples and family issues, adoption/blended family issues.
Support groups, parent education, and home-based organizational/coaching services are provided by The Weaver Center staff, as well as on-going school advocacy, and individually-designed home and school behavior programs.
Therapy, coaching and tutoring services are available nationally [and], internationally and conveniently via Skype.
Dr. Robert A. Weaver, III, Ph.D., speaks to and conducts workshops for students, parents and professionals, including in-service training, program development and supervision of professionals.
