We took our son to Dr. Hayward last June based on a recommendation from his school. This was an emotionally charged situation as we were looking at a potential diagnoses of ADHD for our 7 year old. Dr. Hayward was wonderful. She talked us thru the process and helped us understand what to expect from the testing. Our son spent 3+ hours for two days with her and was totally comfortable with her. She was also great helping us and his teachers interpret the results and identifying needed support.
Dr Hayward has been my daughter's Neuropsychologist for the past 4 years. She has helped her navigate both High School and College in the areas of Diagnosis and Accommodations. She has made herself available when needed with the NY Board of Ed, College Board, and most recently New York University. I contribute much of my daughter's success to her time with Dr. Hayward and could not recommend her more strongly. She is approachable and a consummate professional with an extreme attention to detail.
Dr. Hayward was one of those angels that helped us on our journey toward discovering our daughter's special needs. From the initial phone call to the final visit, she was kind, gentle and loving. We interviewed 6 different neuropsychologists and Dr. Hayward was the only one that did not treat us like we were just a number. She showed genuine compassion and concern from the very beginning. She is a rare find and we will be forever grateful for her wisdom and guidance.
Working with Dr. Hayward was a pleasure for our entire family. She was informative, easily available by phone and email, patient with our questions, and most importantly, incredibly warm and engaging with our daughter (8yrs old). She was suggested by another professional at our daughters school and we highly recommend.
Dr Hayward was terrific to work with. She was accessible, considerate, thorough with her time with us and our son and she was instrumental in helping us craft a real plan of action to help our son be the most successful version of himself possible. We also included Dr Hayward in our son's network of educators, school psychologists, tutors and other "members of the team", and she always worked very well and efficiently with them to ensure we were all on the same page. Would highly recommend!
Dr. Hayward is the best! Through her evaluation and support we have found the right school and future path for our daughter.
I highly recommend Dr. Hayward and have referred multiple friends to her practice.
Dr. Hayward possesses a combination of intelligence, experience, perceptiveness and friendliness that makes her both easy to work with and exceptional at what she does. She's good with parents and kids and, importantly, school teachers and administrators too. You want her on your team.
Dr. Hayward is a skilled experienced psychologist that evaluated my kids. I very much appreciated her willingness and sensitivity to accommodate our time sensitive situation. She gave our family a much clearer understanding of learning disabilities and educational challenges that our kids experience. She was thorough in her evaluation and findings and her explanations and recommendations were accurate and appropriate.
My kids were evaluated by Dr Hayward, she was recommended by a peer & is highly regarded in her field. My kids were flailing in their "great public schools" and after years of warily trusting educators that said & insinuated that was the always kid's shortcomings, mostly deflecting any responsibility, I sought out an actual professional. Dr Hayward's testing provided valuable insight as to how my kids learn, what was getting in the way & what teaching strategies & environments would serve them best.
Our experience with Dr. Hayward is wonderful. Dr. Hayward performed a neuropsychological evaluation for my 7 year old son, and as a result of her very thorough work (and subsequent report), we not only have a clear path forward regarding necessary interventions for our son, we also have a report that will strongly support our request for services at his school. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Hayward is a top-notch neuropsychologist - knowledgeable, caring, professional, friendly and family-oriented.
I highly recommend Dr Hayward. Her experience and compassion are evident at first meeting. She walked my daughter and me through the evaluation and took time to answer all our questions. After giving us the diagnosis, she patiently answered all our questions and offered suggestions for actions we could take to mediate the impact in the classroom. When my daughter experienced an unrelated mental health issue over a year later, she responded immediately with a referral to an excellent therapist.
We contacted Dr. Hayward on the recommendation of our school. She administered a neuro-psych eval to our 6-year-old, born a micro-preemie and dealing with a few neurological delays. My husband and I met with Dr. Hayward who provided us with clear information about this evaluation. Our consultations were clear, thoughtful, and informative, and she gave us plenty of time for discussion. Our eval has provided an excellent template of our child's learning profile. Highly recommend.
