The Hallowell Centers
“After meeting you and your staff, our eyes were opened to such a great life my son can have with just the right push and guidance. Thank you again and I am so thrilled he will start his college semester with a the right foot. Thank you.” – M. A. Florida
“Dr. Hallowell convinced my son ADHD is an ASSET not a liability. He took that lesson to heart and proves his asset to be like finding gold every day. What was once a glass half empty view of ADHD is now a glass overflowing with potential and enthusiasm.” Bob M.
Hallowell Centers’ Strength-Based Philosophy:

The Experience of Getting an Evaluation at the Hallowell Centers
Hi, this is Dr. Ned Hallowell. I want to describe what it’s like to come to my offices in New York City, Sudbury or San Francisco.
First of all, I want you to know it is a very low stress, high warmth experience. Everything we do at my center is aimed at helping our clients feel comfortable and at ease. We want you to leave feeling much more upbeat and de-stressed than you may have been when you arrived. You will find our staff to be young, personable, and relaxed. They can laugh! They smile! They are not your typical waiting room medical personnel.
The evaluation itself will start by your telling your story to one of our clinicians, maybe me, maybe one of the other excellent professionals who work with me. This is the most important part of the process. We want to hear about your life, what you’re happy with, what you want to change, what you’re uncertain of, what your hopes and dreams might be, as well as your fears. We want to connect with you. This is our top priority. Then we might recommend some neuropsychological tests. These are fun to take. Puzzles, games, mazes, that sort of thing. Nothing uncomfortable. Just tests we use to get an understanding of how you learn.
After that, we will write up a report and deliver that to you as soon as we can. You’ll have a wrap-up session with the clinician who met with you at the start, and develop a plan for what to do next.
That’s it. I predict you will find the experience to be enlightening and enjoyable. You’ll learn about yourself in ways that can only lead to positive changes. And you will feel relieved by what you’ll learn. We’re in the good news business. I think of myself as a specialist not in treating disabilities but in unwrapping gifts.
If you have any questions, please give us a call of send us an email:
I look forward to meeting you!
