Other Childhood and Adolescent Disorders Related to Anxiety and Depression
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Disruptive Behavior Disorders, Autism/Aspergers Disorders, Communication Disorders and Learning Disorders often co-exist with anxiety and depressive disorders in children and adolescents. Therefore our practice also includes a specialization in psycho-educational assessment for the purpose of diagnosis and treatment/intervention of learning and behavioral problems. Parents with concerns about their child’s cognitive processing (attention, memory, and perception), academic achievement, overall development, and psychological/social functioning are appropriate candidates for this type of assessment. These psycho educational assessments can provide important information to parents and educators about any special education needs that are appropriate for their child.
