Alyson Aviv PhD, ABPdN

Clinical Psychologist, Neuropsychologist

ABOUT

I am a bilingual licensed clinical psychologist and the only American board certified pediatric neuropsychologist in Israel. After relocating back to Israel from Saint Louis, MO in 2014, I see patients and their families at my diagnostic and treatment clinic in Raanana. I have extensive experience and expertise in accurate diagnosis of ADHD, learning difficulties, dyslexia, autism spectrum, developmental issues, emotional disorders, behavioral disorders, adjustment difficulties, and marital and family issues. I strongly believe that in order to provide a personalized treatment plan, accurate assessment is a crucial first step. Using a thorough holistic assessment approach, and the latest up-to-date international assessment measures, I can explain the sources of difficulties, and then provide resources for overcoming them. I am currently the only Israeli provider of COGMED, an evidence based cognitive therapy program for individuals with poor working memory, a common weakness in children and adults who have been diagnosed with ADHD.

I have published papers and given a variety of workshops and presentations internationally and locally. I consult regularly with area graduate and undergraduate programs, schools and preschools, and give lectures, workshops and group presentations. In addition to individual assessment and therapy services, I run various short term psychotherapy groups.

I can provide documentation for American Citizens for insurance reimbursement and have much experience providing documentation for international testing accommodations for standardized exams such as SAT, ACT, and GRE etc.

I look forward to working with you, clarifying the source of difficulties, identifying strengths, and helping to determine a path forward for future happiness and success.
