CTY is experiencing heavy communications and application processing volumes. We appreciate your patience and will respond to queries as quickly as possible.
Individuals and families come to the Diagnostic and Counseling Center with a wide variety of questions and concerns about a student's learning, development, social-emotional well-being, and educational needs. While we work with students who have a variety of characteristics, we have special expertise in working with academically advanced students and twice-exceptional learners.
The founders of the Diagnostic and Counseling Center, Dr. Linda Brody and Dr. Carol Mills, authored a seminal review article on advanced students with learning disabilities. Our staff have years of experience assessing and counseling bright students, including those with learning challenges.
