All Needs Supersede All Other Needs


The Queenswood Group and Dr. Hallman have being providing Neuropsychological and Psycho-Diagnostic assessment for all ages in British Columbia since 1981 and Saskatchewan since 1996. (Check here for Dr. Hallman’s Resume). Whether you are looking for a Neuropsychological, eligibility, psycho-educational, vocational/interest, or specialty assessment (such as for syndromes or spectrum disorders - FASD, ASD, and similar), give us a call to find out what we can offer.  More information can be found at Assessment. Please note that Queenswood provides comprehensive assessment, diagnosis, and training for adults and children of all ages who display ADHD/ADD.


NEUROPLACTICITY

Queenswood presents a variety of training approaches that attempt to capitalize on the brain’s exquisite ability to modify itself (neuroplasticity) based on sensory inputs (vision, hearing, touch, taste, and smell) from the environment.  If medications or talk therapy are not working for you, or these are not approaches you wish to pursue, come in and discuss what we might be able to provide for you. Most of our training can be via the Internet in your home or anywhere you have access to a computer.


Many of our training approaches address problems underlying ADHD, STRESS and ANXIETY REDUCTION, and MEMORY problems (adults and children) and similar. Stress is basic to many of the emotional problems and even mental health issues faced by individuals on a daily basis.  As such, it is of importance that we do something about it as, in 2007, the Journal of America Medical Association noted that workplace stress (and all stress by extrapolation) is as bad for your heart as smoking and high cholesterol.


All our modules are based on 5 to 10 week training packages (depending on how much time can be given to the training each week - but no less than 3 paced sessions per week), with weekly (if not more frequent) contact/follow-up by Queenswood’s coach.  Additional options are available if more training is wished at the end of the initial package.


WORKING MEMORY TRAINING

Exciting news!!!  Dr. Hallman offers COGMED’s training programme for working memory (whether this is a problem for you or you simply wish to increase your capacity for this important brain process, which underlies and is basic to most of what we do, day-to-day).

HEARTMATH HRV

Queenswood is now providing Heart Rate Variability (HRV) evaluations and Training based on the HeartMath approach to HRV.  Recently the HeartMath approach to HRV has been shown to be effective at treating PTSD with US veterans (click here).


COGNITIVE TRAINING/RETRAINING

Dr. Hallman also provides a wide range of brain training, cognitive re-training, and similar.  Whether you have a neuro-typical brain and want to be more efficient, have processing problems and/or learning difficulties, have had a neurological insult (such as a car or recreational accident, or concussion, or stroke), are getting older (those dreaded “senior moments”), or have begun developing a dementia, we may be able to help.  The Queenswood Group will use a variety of methods, from state-of-the-art electronic devices in our office or in your home, through to low tech approaches that can be used anywhere.  Come in and discuss what your needs are.



In additional to comprehensive Psycho-Diagnostic assessments and training approaches discussed above, Dr. Hallman is Board Certified in EEG-Biofeedback and has achieved Associate Fellow standing with:









ENVIRONMENTAL/EXPECTATION/COMMUNICATION

If you have a child (or adult with IDD, see below) who is displaying significant emotional dysfunction, and no current approach seems to be able to successfully address these difficulties, come in and discuss our rather unique approach to such difficulties.  Look under Programme Development/QPRGI EEC or QMPS.  Queenswood is now presenting training in the QPRGI-EEC approach to small groups or just family members.  Ask us about this.
