Non-Medical Intervention For ADD, ADHD
& Behaviorally Challenged Children
Having treated children with ADD and ADHD for decades, I have witnessed the havoc it wreaks with their memory. I’ve looked a child straight in the eye, told them something, and immediately asked to repeat what I said — all I get back is a vacant stare. Children with ADHD just don’t retain auditory information the same way — and their mind often seems to be a million miles away. No wonder parents go bananas trying to get their child to remember to shut off the lights, close the door or anything else, such as doing their homework.
The “PowerChip” system has the special advantage of empowering the parent, giving them control and enabling them to guide their child in the appropriate direction that will enhance their abilities and ensure success and happiness in life.

ABOUT DR. SCHEMBRI, Ed.D
BA in Psychology from St John's University
MA in Psychology from New York University
Doctorate in Counseling from Boston University
50 years of experience in practice
Hailing from the best city in the world (Brooklyn, New York), Dr. Joseph Schembri grew up in an Italian immigrant family and loved psychology since the age of 13. He recalls being motivated by an old movie—a murder mystery solved by a psychologist and detective teaming together. Ultimately, this was awe-inspiring to him and led him to be mentored by his cousin Rocco, a brilliant mathematician and chemist.
Dr. Schembri is a licensed psychologist with over 40 years of experience working with children and adults with a variety of behavioral problems. Originally from Brooklyn, NY, he received his Bachelors from St. John's University in Queens, NY and his Masters from New York University. He graduated from Boston University with a doctorate in counseling and psychotherapy. He has done clinical internships at North Shore Guidance Center and Roslindale Detention Center.
Founder of Norwood Behavioral Health, an integrated primary practice group of eight pediatricians, Dr. Schembri serves as clinic director of a staff of 10 behavioral experts including three board certified child psychiatrists from Johns Hopkins, Harvard/Children's hospital and Tufts University.
Integrated primary care is the joining of primary care of pediatricians with behavioral care—a cutting edge trend in medicine. All pediatric cases are presented at staff meetings and reviewed by this interdisciplinary team of 10 experts.
Dr. Schembri is the founder of several clinics throughout Massachusetts and single-handedly obtained Joint Commission Accreditation for that last one. He has worked in all settings, including schools, hospitals, prisons, long term care, and corporations. Finally, Dr. Schembri developed his own psychological protocol for evaluating dangerousness in schools, post-Columbine disaster.
