Susan Hayut, M.Ed.

I am a psychologist/psychotherapist licensed by the Quebec Order of Psychologists (O.P.Q.). My private practice, at the Parent-Child Resource Center in Montreal, Canada, is presently my main focus. My work includes family therapy, individual therapy, psychoeducational evaluations, educational consultations and a variety of other services that are outlined on the home page.

In the past I taught at Vanier College (in Montreal, Canada) in the Department of Special Care Counseling. As well, I taught part-time in the Department of Educational and Counseling Psychology at McGill University (in Montreal, Canada) and in the Department of Applied Human Science at Concordia University (in Montreal, Canada).

I earned my Masters degree in Educational and Counseling Psychology at McGill University in Montreal. My research area was attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). I was the proud winner of two awards for my research on "The Impact of Intervention, on Quality of Life, for Families of Children with ADHD: The Mother's Perspective" (2002), one for a poster presented at McGill University and a second from CHADD International (Children and Adults with Attention Deficit Disorder), presented at the 15th Annual CHADD International Conference in Denver Colorado in November 2003. My research was funded by a number of scholarships of which I was the proud recipient. These included an FCAR (Fonds pour la Formation de Chercheurs et l'Aide à la Recherche) Scholarship, the Dr. John A Bryant Memorial Scholarship in Inclusive Education, and a Concordia University Fellowship.

Having dedicated over thirty-five years to children and their families, my clientele has included children and adults with behavior disorders (ADD, ADHD, ODD, CD), with social and emotional difficulties, with intellectual challenges and with learning disabilities.
