Dr. Walker performs diagnostic assessments for a variety of different disorders (including ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorders in adolescents and adults), as well as for various other situations in which individuals require psychological evaluation (e.g., documentation for school/work, medical consultation, bariatric surgery, adoption, etc.).
