Developmental Research

Childhood Onset Schizophrenia Study

Childhood onset schizophrenia study

This study focuses on school-age children between the ages of 6 years to 15 years of age who may be at risk for developing schizophrenia or have been diagnosed with schizophrenia. This study usually takes place in one to two visits. During the first visit, parents will meet with a trained mental health clinician to discuss their child’s possible symptoms, treatment history, family history, and behaviors. While you are in the interview, your child will be completing Neuropsychiatric testing including the WISC-III and computer assessments. Follow the links above to learn more about these tests. Next, your child will meet with the mental health clinician who will ask him/her questions about their behaviors, thoughts, and feelings. At the end of the first day, you will then meet with Dr. Randy Ross, who will answer any questions you may have and discuss a possible diagnosis with you.
