Children and adolescents go through various developmental stages characterized by a wide variety of behaviors. Their behavior is constantly changing and evolving. Because of this, it is often difficult to know when psychological counseling is indicated.
If behaviors become severe or impact your child’s functioning at home or in school, an evaluation can help determine what type of intervention may be helpful.
The Clinic offers a variety of treatment interventions to address concerns commonly encountered by children, adolescents and families including
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy
- Behavior therapy
- Family counseling
- Social skills training
- Parent training
- Parent Child Interaction Therapy
What can you expect with our psychological evaluation process?
The Clinic provides comprehensive testing and evaluation services for children and adults with the goal of assisting with diagnostic clarification, treatment recommendations, and accommodations. Evaluations might include assessment of the following concerns:
- Learning and processing challenges (including learning disabilities, underachievement)
- Behavioral concerns (including assessment for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)
- Problems with memory or focusing
- Concerns about early development
- Concerns about mood, anxiety or relationship problems
In addition to an interview, the evaluation includes various tests, including, but not limited to achievement, intellectual, processing, neuropsychological, behavioral and emotional testing. Tests are chosen based on the specific nature of the presenting questions or referral concerns. Evaluations include information from various sources, including family members and school personnel. School records and previous treatment records are an important part of an evaluation.
The GSU Brain Health Clinic offers neuropsychological assessments and brief memory screenings for individuals concerned about age-related memory and cognitive difficulties. Services are provided for clients who noticed difficulties in their thinking abilities as well as those who have not noticed problems but are interested in receiving “check-ups” to chart their memory and cognitive changes over time. As part of the evaluation and feedback, all clients will receive educational information about brain-healthy behaviors that can help them preserve or improve their cognitive functioning as they age. If you are interested in scheduling an evaluation or have questions, please call 404-413-6229.For more information on Brain Health Clinic
