Dear Physicians, Parents, and Community Members,
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is increasing the need for children’s mental and behavioral health services, as you are no doubt aware. At the same time, the pandemic is also greatly restricting families’ access to safe in-person care.
Here at the Children’s Program, we have developed ways to continue to serve families who need these services, including those who have in the past been unable to visit our physical clinic because of travel and time constraints.
Our Virtual Clinic is now right in your neighborhood! Here are some of the services currently available:
Individual counseling and behavioral support for:
- Eating, weight, and body image issues
- Emotional regulation issues (e.g., anger, temper tantrums)
- LGBTQ, gender identity, sexuality, transition support
- Oppositional and defiant behavior
- Sleep difficulties
- Toileting difficulties
- And other behavioral/mood concerns (click link to access full list).
Diagnostic evaluation services for:
- Autism Spectrum Disorder
- Academic challenges
- Learning disabilities (e.g., dyslexia, dysgraphia)
- And other diagnostic questions (click link to access full list).
Medication consultations (with a psychiatrist or developmental-behavioral pediatrician).
To learn more about the above services, parents should visit our intake page and submit an online inquiry.
