Dr. Frank Perez Verdecia Bio

During my formative years as a neuropsychologist, I delved deeply into diagnostic training, focusing on the intricate interplay between the physical brain and our behaviors. Yet, I recognized a conspicuous gap: the discipline placed minimal emphasis on treatment. Initially, I attributed this shortfall to my alma mater, but I soon discerned a pervasive pattern across many academic institutions—a notable scarcity of treatment-centric resources. In 2006, I launched Health of Mind, Inc., a venture dedicated to empowering adults with developmental disabilities to lead independent lives within the community. While our habilitation program made significant strides, I felt the weight of my limitations in behavioral intervention. This realization propelled me towards the field of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). My intent was to merge the diagnostic strengths of Neuropsychology with the intervention prowess of ABA. The integration was not just seamless but also transformative. Harnessing the synergy of both fields, I was better equipped to diagnose and adeptly treat individuals across a diverse spectrum of ages and conditions. The efficacy of my interventions soon burgeoned to the point where I had to onboard other clinicians to emulate my methodologies. As of now, we boast a robust team of over 100 clinicians, diligently echoing our evidence-based treatment protocols. My clinical journey, encapsulating a diverse range of ages, conditions, and challenges—be it neurodevelopmental or neuroacquired disorders, medical or psychological issues, acute or chronic conditions—has been nothing short of serendipitous. The word 'luck' often signifies being at the right juncture at the opportune moment, and that aptly sums up my clinical odyssey. My profound gratitude extends to the resilient family we have fostered at Health of Mind, a community that has been our bedrock through tumultuous times. I appreciate your time in acquainting yourself with my professional narrative. Muchas Gracias! Warm Regards, Frank
