PlusFour Solutions is a clinical practice specializing in the assessment
of school-aged children. This group provides psychological testing to meet various treatment and therapeutic needs. Their analyses
can be used to answer many questions concerning development, clinical diagnosis, educational and learning needs, and to aid in treatment
and placement decisions. They also do evaluations as part of the limited forensic work they do for the legal system.
Dr. Steve Newton has been in practice in the Bay Area since 1982, and has built a “distinguished reputation” for clinical assessment

2,500 test batteries.
