Paul B. Yellin, M.D., FAAP and his team of experienced clinicians help struggling students experience genuine success in school and in life. Our interdisciplinary assessments help define a student’s unique learning profile to create an individual action plan for academic improvement. We help students, their families, and their teachers understand how students learn and to implement strategies to build on strengths and meet challenges. We also work with professionals in education and other fields to share emerging knowledge and practices in the study of learning and the practice of assessment.
The Yellin Center is located in the heart of New York City. Families from five continents, fifteen countries, and from across the United States have worked with our center since its inception.
At The Yellin Center, our assessment and management programs serve students in grades K-12, as well as young children; college, graduate and medical students; and young adults. Dr. Yellin worked with the Senior Associate Dean for Student Affairs of the New York University School of Medicine, his alma mater, to develop an assessment program for medical students with academic difficulties and now works extensively with medical students, resident physicians, and faculty from schools across the nation to improve their performance, meet the expectations of their supervisors, and pass key exams leading to licensure. The Yellin Center is affiliated with the NYU School of Medicine, Department of Pediatrics, and is a training site for its Developmental-Behavioral Pediatric Fellowship Program.
