Diagnostic Services for Child & Adolescent Behavioral Health

Is your child struggling in school? Experiencing conflict at home or with peers? Displaying changes in mood or behavior?

Identifying a child’s needs, and strengths, is the first step

Emotional, behavioral and/or learning issues can surface at any age and impact any aspect of a child or adolescent’s daily life. Diagnostic testing and evaluation is a critical step in accessing appropriate treatment while providing necessary and accurate documentation of a child’s challenges, and strengths.

Behavioral Health Diagnostics offer a comprehensive assessment of a child or adolescent who may be facing one issue, or many, that may be affecting their ability to perform in school, get along at home, or continue healthy development.

Assessments for a wide range of psycho-social issues and behaviors include:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder/Anxiety/Phobias
