Child and Adolescent Consultation
Specialized services for children and adolescents are available through the Clinical Health Psychology Child and Adolescent Consult Service.
We provide psychological (neuropsychological or psychodiagnostic) assessment to help understand how a medical condition or brain injury impacts a child's learning and behavior, or for the purpose of diagnostic clarification of developmental and mental health concerns.
We provide treatment services (individual, group, parent-mediated, and family-based modalities) focused on the management of health-related problems (pain, feeding difficulties, health worries), chronic illness adjustment and coping (including support for treatment adherence), and mental health concerns (behavior problems, anxiety) that are directly related to a medical condition.
