Dr. Stein has seen our 9 year old daughter for evaluation, as her schoolwork was not at grade level and we thought there might be some issues we could help her with. His extensive testing helped guide us in finding our her where her difficulties lay and enabled us to focus on them. He has a great way with kids, is extremely knowledgeable, confers with other professionals in the area when needed, and gave us the guidance we needed to help her. She is now at grade level, and Dr. Stein has helped us find the tools for her to succeed. We would highly recommend him. He is just the best!

Through the recommendation from my son’s high school’s counselor, I was so lucky to have my son’s psycho-educational testing done at Stein Psychological Associates. From the first telephone interview with Dr. Mark Stein, I could tell that he and his center was the right place to go. Dr. Stein was an extremely patient person. He not only spent lengthy time telling me about all the procedures of the test, he also explained the rationales behind each of the steps. From that conversation, I knew right away that I could trust him. Later he introduced Dr. David Judd to me to conduct the testing. My first meeting with Dr. Judd was also a pleasant one. Dr. Judd was very patient and professional, and our first interview was very comfortable. Even though my son was a bit anxious about this initial test session, he told me that it was a total pleasure working with him. That told me a lot about how pleasant and professional Dr. Judd was because that’s a comment from a teenager boy! After a series of meeting with Dr. Judd, he provided me the most detailed report of his observations and observations about my son. He explained his results and gave me recommendations in a completely professional way. I was so grateful and appreciates all his service because he discovered a lot of traits about my son that I have always have questions about. Meeting Dr. Stein and getting our psycho-educational testing done with Dr. David Judd is one of the best learning experiences for both me and my son. I believe Dr. Judd is one of the best mental health professionals and I strongly recommend everyone who needs any psychological services visit Stein Psychological Associates.

Thank you for the updated diagnosis for our son . As a child, testing had revealed a different diagnosis which helped us plan his therapy at that time. We noticed that as he made his way through the maze of education his learning needs changed. As a freshman college student he again had difficulties especially in the area of math, and study skills. I knew that he needed to update study skills and he needed a different kind of help in math. I’m an elementary teacher, yet frustrated because what I had planned in the past didn’t completely help my son as a young adult student. It was really serious because he was on “conditional acceptance” at CSUN. In a way we were forced to address his learning needs ASAP. So, thanks to your careful testing we are on track again. Now he understands how he learns, he gets educational therapy, testing modifications from his college, and coaching in math. He understands that staying away from careers which involve math is not necessary, just needs to recognize that math is an area he’ll probably need help in throughout his college career. Dr. Stein, hopefully other families will understand that addressing a person’s needs whether social or academic first needs thorough investigation through testing so everyone involved knows exactly what is going on.
