Our child and adolescent psychiatry clinic offers comprehensive, evidence based, pediatric psychiatry services to patients from infancy up to 18 years old.
We provide a 90-minute, comprehensive psychiatric evaluation with a physician, which involves full participation of the patient and the family. The evaluation includes completion and careful review of an intake packet covering your child’s current and past history, including the presence of any psychiatric symptoms. We use standardized rating scales to help with the assessment and to follow your child’s progress.
We will also collect information gathered from all those involved with your child including caregivers, teachers, school counselors and psychologists, therapists and caseworkers. At the conclusion of the evaluation, we review the findings with the family and we work with them to develop an individualized treatment plan.
The treatment plan may include, but is not limited to:
- Individual therapy
- Family therapy
- Group therapy
- Medication management
In addition, the Early Childhood Clinic is available, which:
- Provides evaluation, assessment, and treatment of children from infancy through age 5 years.
- Is staffed by University faculty, a pediatric psychiatrist and a psychologist, both who have expertise in assessing and treating very young children and their families.
