Maria DiDonato, D.Ed.
Dr. Maria DiDonato is a licensed psychologist in Pennsylvania who has been practicing psychology for over 20 years. The clinical practice involves individual, family and counseling for children. As a private clinician, she has worked with all ages from preschool to adulthood. Dr. DiDonato uses multiple methods of evaluation and diagnostic instruments for new patients in order to help identify problems and work towards solutions and the best course of treatment. These include psycho educational and neuropsychological evaluations, as well as several clinical measures.
Dr. DiDonato’s background includes extensive experience working in and out of the classroom and school setting. As a school psychologist, she observed, evaluated prepared reports and made recommendations for children’s accommodations and remediation, and provided expert testimony for placement issues. The welfare of the child was paramount, which continues to be her primary concern.
Dr DiDonato has been in private practice for over 20 years. She has experience in individual and family counseling, psychotherapy and peripheral biofeedback. In 1996, Dr. DiDonato received initial training in neurofeedback. This training opened the door to alternative treatments for Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD), which she began to incorporate in her practice. Since then, research and extensive clinical practice in the United States and around the world have opened the door to treatment that includes other disorders and conditions that include many emotional, behavioral and learning problems as well as peak performance. By combining thorough diagnostic measures with clinical counseling, psychotherapy and neurofeedback the beneficial effects of treatment are often realized more quickly. Her enthusiasm is enormous and reinforced every time success is realized with those in care
