Our Approach To Anxiety Disorders in Children

What Sets Us Apart

Anxiety can be a normal part of growing up, but when your child’s worries become overwhelming and interfere with his or her quality of life, experts at the Child Study Center, part of Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone, can help. Anxiety disorders can take various forms, including generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, social anxiety, panic disorder, separation anxiety disorder, phobias, and selective mutism, in which a child refuses to speak in certain situations. Our team of child and adolescent psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers diagnoses these conditions and offers personalized treatment plans to meet your child’s needs.
