Psychiatric Services

  • If your child’s symptoms are in the moderate to severe range, a psychiatric evaluation may be recommended. This is an in-depth, focused examination that examines the role biological, psychological, and social factors may play in emotional and behavioral concerns. Our child psychiatry team is specialized in treating children and adolescents. They work with children and families to understand presenting issues, formulate diagnostic impressions, make treatment recommendations, and to provide related services such as medication management, therapy, and working collaboratively with other providers.

Neuropsychological & Psychological Assessment

Social, emotional, and learning assessments are available for children ages 8+ who are experiencing behavioral, emotional, and/or academic challenges. Each assessment is tailored to develop a better understanding of the presenting problem, whether it be social or emotional functioning or learning issues. The information gathered during the evaluation is used to create recommendations for improved daily functioning at home and at school.

Personalized assessments address concerns relating to:

  • ADHD & Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) testing & treatment planning
  • Concussions
  • Academic difficulties
  • Social difficulties
  • Executive functioning
  • Emotion regulation​
