The Young Child Clinic offers comprehensive assessments and treatment to children from birth through five years old who have social-emotional, behavioral, traumatic, and mental health difficulties. Following a three part evaluation, parents are provided a feedback session to discuss findings and recommendations.
Treatment at the Young Child Clinic is family centered and evidence-based. We welcome siblings, extended family, and all caregivers who have an important relationship with the child. Interventions are determined by the developmental age of the child, specific problem, and needs of the family and child. Behavior programs, parent skills training, and various types of therapies are the primary tools implemented. Medications may be necessary and are used to augment the other interventions after thoughtfully consideration and collaboration with the family. Coordination of care with schools, daycare centers, therapists, primary care physicians, and other medical specialists is included with treatment.
