We treat children with a range of mental health conditions, including anxiety and mood disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and behavior disorders, autism spectrum disorder, eating disorders, sexual and gender identity issues, learning disorders, selective mutism, sleep-related disorders, childhood traumatic stress, and tic and Tourette disorders.

Specialized Evaluations

Our team offers several types of individualized evaluations to pinpoint the source of your child’s challenges. For example, we may perform a psychiatric evaluation to understand your child’s emotional and behavioral difficulties, and determine a diagnosis and create a treatment plan.

For children who struggle academically or face challenges related to giftedness, our experts at the Institute for Learning and Academic Achievement, diagnose learning challenges and the effects of brain injury through neuropsychological, psychological, and psychoeducational evaluations.

For children with symptoms of autism spectrum disorder or social communication disorder, we have a dedicated Autism Spectrum Disorder Service. As part of treatment, we can observe your child in the classroom and work with school personnel.
