Mary Crittendon has come recommended to me to assess my child.
She is a developmental and behavorial pediatric pyschologist at
UCSF. Has anyone had any experience with her or heard anything?
My son was evaluated by Mary Crittendon in kindergarten (he is
now in 6th grade). She was wonderful. A tiny woman who can fit
in the little chairs that the kids sit in. She was very helpful
in seeing my child in all his diverse aspects. She did not
diagnose ADHD but did suggest follow up evaluations. She had
very specific information about how he perceived the world
around him and how to help him be more comfortable and
effective. We didn't go back to her, but four years later we
did end up having him seen again and he was diagnosed with
ADHD. He is now seeing Dr. Brad Berman, who I love and who also
sees kids as wonderful, funny, interesting humans who need help
and guidance to be their best. My suggestion is, if you go to
her and she says come back in a year -- do it.
