Educational Specialties in Northridge, CA
A complete evaluation of learning strengths and weaknesses is vital to providing help to the student with learning difficulties. Often disabilities are multi-faceted and parents, child, and school personnel need to have a complete understanding to provide the appropriate compensatory services. For this reason, Yellen & Associates specializes in thoroughness. We provide a comprehensive report and concluding conference to enhance the understanding. We can provide referrals to medical specialists when indicated.
Yellen & Associates is ready to provide full scale remediation and/or compensation as needed for learning disorders such as dyslexia, Scotopic Sensitivity/Irlen Syndrome, specific developmental disabilities, Attention Deficit Disorder, Tourette Syndrome, perceptual problems, and other learning problems which may negatively impact achievement.
All associates are highly qualified and have been chosen for their expertise in their fields of specialty. Each client is carefully matched with the therapist so the therapist and client establish rapport easily. Tutoring covers all subjects, including reading, reading comprehension, math, written composition, spelling, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, physics, biological sciences, chemistry, English, study skills, and SAT and ISEE preparation.
When your child needs a change in his or her school day, either a 504 Plan or an IEP (Individualized Education Program) meeting is often setup. The purpose of these meetings is to formalize what in-class modifications will be made or to set goals and a means of reaching those goals to address specific educational deficits. Parents may bring an advocate - a professional who understands the student's disabilities and needs and can communicate these needs to the professionals at the school. When disagreements arise, an advocate is always watching out for the child's best interests. Yellen & Associates has a long history of successful advocacy on behalf of students with learning disabilities, Attention Deficit Disorder, Tourette Syndrome, memory or processing deficits, and other education-impacting difficulties.

It's been my great pleasure to associate with these doctors.They have been motivating me and is being wonderful persons .They are also very helpful in every way .
Incredible help for my son
We have had a tough time figuring out what was going on with our son. He is a very smart kid, but in the 3rd grade was reading at the first grade level. We are at the tail end of a very in depth analysis by Yellen & Associates. So far, they found 1 issue to be Irlen Syndrome. With special filters, his reading fluency has improved dramatically. We wlook forward to seeing what the rest of the analysis shows, and how we can further help our son. I would recommend them to anyone with a child that is having issues, to help develop a game plan to helping them succeed. On a side note, they are very nice!
Accessible and helpful for the whole family
Dr. Yellen has helped our family for the last 6 years. With teenagers, I was in need of much guidance. Dr. Yellen was also able to counsel my teenage daughter to help her with her problems. But it has been my son who has benefited most from working with Dr. Yellen. He felt out of control and depressed, but Dr. Yellen was able to recognize quickly that my son had a learning disability that we had not considered. Through some extensive testing, Dr. Yellen's assessment gave my son very needed accommodations to help him with school. He also gained more confidence through his understanding of his disability. My family continues to reach out to Dr. Yellen as needed. He is always there for us.
Diversity of Education
The Yellens have a deep understanding and true concern for the welfare of how education has lost it's diversity for children and how different they learn. Educational therapy and advocacy is what stands between the eduational system we have today and the future of children tomorrow. The Yellen's expertise opened up avenues for my son I would have never known existed. We are on the right path and have the Yellens for support for the next road ahead. Thank you for everything.
Kind and very thorough
I first met Dr. Yellen when my son was diagnosed with Irlen Syndrome. It's hard to find people who know about this condition. Dr. Yellen can both diagnose it and prescribe for it. We brought our second son in for different issues because of the trust we had in him by then. His wife Heidi is equally professional and kind. Both obviously enjoy working with children. Their services are more comprehensive and thus more expensive than some, but we felt we were in good hands.
above and beyond commitment
My son was recommended for a decompression and psychological therapy about a year ago. He's now 12 going on 13 and his interaction with Yellen & associates has had a tremendous impact on our son's every day life. Dr. Andrew Yellen was in charge of his psychological therapy and a few months later Mrs. Heidi Yellen stepped in and was shocked to know that he was under performing academically. Mrs. Heidi Yellen will be working with our son over the summer to engage him in academical activities that will sharpen his skills and bring him to a level of education that his school, unfortunately would have not accomplished! We are grateful to be working with a power couple in their respective fields, their commitment to not only our son but my family as a whole is above and beyond. Again thank you both! Best wishes, Lazaro & Mayra
