Dr. Colvin is well-spoken and provides understandable and in-depth explanations regarding her evaluations. She takes her time to make sure she has covered everything important, but also tries to answer all of your questions about your child. She is always professional, kind, approachable, and has a natural and relaxed manner when working with children and parents. Her analysis and reports are in-depth but concise and on point. She demonstrates expert knowledge in her field and is able to assess a child’s profile accurately, as well as provide valuable recommendations to parents. I am very happy with our experience with Dr. Colvin.
