My Philosophy


Dr. Katz takes pride in working incessantly with each family to involve them in the process and afford them with a personalized experience that includes ongoing support and communication. Her recommended interventions are grounded in research that supports their effectiveness.

While testing is a useful and often necessary part of an assessment, by no means does it present the full range of needed information for a proper evaluation. Additionally, just because scores are something we as humans are capable of objectively measuring, it does not mean we should give them excessive significance. Observations and conversations with parents, teachers, and the students themselves are just as important. Dr. Katz will work with you throughout the evaluation process while making data-driven conceptualizations and recommendations that consider the entire child.

Dr. Katz’s experiences have confirmed that there is no true “one-size-fits-all” approach to meet each child’s needs; she tailors her approach to meet the individuality of each child and family under their unique circumstances. Each child is capable of doing great things with his or her life given the proper guidance. I look forward to learning about your child’s strengths, supporting his or her weaknesses, and setting you on a path to success.
