Dr. Lindsay Bates is the proud owner and practice leader of Affinity Specialized Developmental Group, a team of highly skilled and passionate clinicians – including psychology, behaviour therapy, occupational therapy, and speech-language pathology – providing an evidence-based, continuum of care to Maritime families.
Dr. Bates has been practicing as a clinical child psychologist in Nova Scotia for 20 years – across a range of multidisciplinary settings including schools, hospitals, specialty clinics, and private practice. Dr. Bates specializes in comprehensive psychoeducational and developmental assessments to explore a range of neurodevelopmental disorders – such as learning disorders, attentional problems, and autism spectrum disorders – in children and youth (ages 2 to 16).
In addition to her assessment practice, Dr. Bates also offers consultation and parent coaching, as well as being actively involved in the training and supervision of graduate students and new psychologists. When not wearing her ‘psychologist hat’, Dr. Bates is also a proud mom, stepmom, grandmother, and fur-mama who was born and raised in Halifax.
