Dana Chidekel, PhD A Psychological Corporation
I am a board-certified pediatric neuropsychologist in private practice. I provide comprehensive assessments to children and young adults who are struggling in individual subjects in school, with testing, or in managing schoolwork in a more general way; who are having problems in social relationships with peers, community members or family members; and/or who are not able to regulate their behavior and emotional lives in satisfying and adaptive ways. My goal goes beyond determining the label(s) for "diagnosis." My goal is to help parents, educators, mental health professionals and children understand WHY a child is struggling. Things that look like what a child "won't do" may actually be things a child "can't do." Or not. In either case, to figure out the interventions and accommodations that will help (and which ones won't), it is critical to clarify what is giving rise to the problems to begin with. A comprehensive neuropsychological assessment of a child's neurocognitive, academic and emotional function should do just that. Parents should emerge from the process feeling, "I really understand my child." They should leave with a report that is written in plain English, so anyone with whom it is shared will understand the child as well, and feel empowered with that understanding to provide any accommodations or services that are recommended.

Save a Little Life
Save A Little Life” was founded by Richard Pass, RN, BS in 1999. Richard’s goal was to provide a simpler, more “user friendly” CPR course where the focus would be on learning simple techniques and skills based on the guidelines of the American Heart Association. The program took off when Richard teamed with The Pump Station in Santa Monica where his courses are still offered on a regular basis. This led to an expansion of his courses to include locations such as A Mother’s Haven in Encino, Dragon Fly Dulou in Los Feliz, The Pump Connection in Sherman Oaks, The Birth Sanctuary in West Los Angeles and, over the years, other family-based retail stores in the L.A. area. Additionally, Save a Little Life works with many companies large and small to make sure everyone is prepared for the unthinkable. Private courses in-home and in-business have become a large part of the courses offered.
