ABOUT US

NINH has been providing services to individuals since 2002. Originally designed to diagnose and treat children with neurodevelopmental disorders, NINH evolved into an agency that now serves people across the lifespan. Having its roots in Southern NH, NINH has expanded services throughout the entire state. NINH currently has offices in Hooksett and Gorham, NH. NINH is committed to helping each individual reach their potential through a holistic approach to diagnosis and treatment.

NINH endeavors to support the healthy development of children and their families. In 2019, THRIVE Parenting Resource was opened, offering community play space, parenting seminars, and classes (Art, Music, Sign Language) to parents and their young (0-5 years old) children. In 2020, NINH will introduce its new Preschool/Kindergarten program, Acorn Montessori.

Please feel free to call us and inquire about our services to individuals across the lifespan. NINH is a provider for most insurances and also contracts with school districts for evaluation and treatment services.
