The program is located at the Sancta Maria Nursing Facility at 799 Concord Avenue, in Cambridge, Massachusetts. For more information on directions, parking, and local accommodations, please visit our Maps & Directions page.
Our outpatient service focuses on evaluating children, adolescents and college students who are experiencing difficulties in educational, home, or social settings due to the impact of difficulties that are neuropsychological (executive functioning challenges, head injury, concussion), learning-based (dyslexia, language-based learning disability, nonverbal learning disability), and/or psychiatric (anxiety, mood disorders, thought disorder). Individuals who benefit from our program often are “stuck” and need a good treatment and/or educational plan so they can move forward.
Families are an important part of the evaluation. We work closely with families to understand their concerns and to obtain important background information. Once the evaluation is conducted, we provide a feedback meeting to help each family understand the evaluation test results, the diagnostic conclusions, and the recommendations for educational and/or treatment planning.
Our program is non-smoking.
Cell phones and other devices are not allowed.
All requests for medical records should be directed to McLean's Health Information Management Department.
To complement our programs’ services and encourage individuals’ initiatives in their own treatment course, many self-help groups are hosted by McLean.
