Child and adolescent assessment

The psychologists that participate in the "Academic Assessment Center" are experienced and trained to provide intelligence and achievement testing services. If the child has attention problems, we also assess for ADHD and emotional problems.

Child and adolescent therapy

Parents, clinicians and the child must all collaborate when the client is a minor child. The child's parent or guardian is informed of and signs the treatment plan. The non-custodial parent has a legal right to review the child's record. Depending on the child's age and issues, either individual sessions with parent consults or conjoint family session may be suggested. In either case, the parent has a right to regular progress reports. Specific interventions may include play therapy or adult therapy techniques.
