Dr. Hain’s practice is devoted to neurodevelopmental disorders in children and adolescents. She has extensive training and experience in the evaluation of learning disorders, autism spectrum disorders, ADHD, TBI, and in the treatment of various mental health disorders. Dr. Hain applies a brain-behavior paradigm in assessment and treatment by identifying a pattern of neurodevelopmental strengths and weaknesses and then linking this pattern to individualized instruction and emotional, motivational, and behavioral interventions. She is deeply grateful to work in this field and continues to be fascinated by the resilience of individuals to overcome and succeed when being supported by evidence-based instruction and intervention that stems from brain science and literacy.
Dr. Hain enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, and practicing Hinduism. She has a love for the New England Patriots and pugs!
