Our developmental evaluations and services are designed to support development, attachment, self-regulation, social-emotional functioning, and long-term mental health in infants, toddlers, and preschoolers who are 0 to 3 years old. Services include:
We can provide consultation in-person, over the phone, or through a HIPAA-compliant video conferencing platform to address questions and concerns that caregivers may have about their child’s development and behavior. These questions and concerns may relate to sleep problems, feeding difficulties, toilet training, general development, temper tantrums, aggressive behavior, and/or discipline; we can also provide support around family transitions and trauma.
Many parents and caregivers have concerns about their child’s development, or how life events have affected their child’s functioning. Developmental screenings use standardized measures that are play-based and interactive to quickly assess a child’s progress and identify potential concerns through exploration of foundational early childhood milestones. The child’s caregiver remains present throughout the process; and we provide recommendations to support your child’s development at the conclusion of each screening, such as through discussing the need for more in-depth evaluation or additional services.
Comprehensive Developmental Evaluations
The team of CRT professionals that conducts our comprehensive developmental evaluations includes a pediatric neuropsychologist with experience in infant and early childhood mental health and a pediatrician. The evaluations themselves can include an assessment of your child’s adaptive, fine and gross motor skills, receptive and expressive language, and/or social-emotional development. The pediatrician will also perform a physical examination, and you will receive feedback on your child’s performance and needs at the conclusion of the evaluation. Additionally, we will provide recommendations for services and/or activities to support your child’s ongoing development, and we will prepare and send a written report after the evaluation.
We can provide individual or group parent education about a wide range of subjects, such as typical child development, preterm infant development, the effects of prenatal substance exposure, developmental delays, birth challenges and health problems that can impact development, sleep problems, feeding and nutrition, developmentally appropriate discipline, behavior concerns (e.g., temper tantrums, biting, other aggressive behavior, bullying, etc.), trauma, and adjustment to family transitions.
