Announcing New Psycho-Educational Service



We hope this school year finished strong for you and your family.  This summer can be an excellent time to re-evaluate educational goals.  If you have any concerns about your student’s performance academically, behaviorally, or socially, CFI can offer assistance in getting your student on-track.
We now have the ability to offer learning disorder and IDEA-category screenings.  To learn more about these testing and assessment opportunities, give us a call to set up a time to speak to one of our assessment psychologists.
