The prevalence of mental health disorders among youth in Central Texas, and the rest of the nation, represents a true public health crisis. Studies have found that 10 to 20 percent of children and adolescents have a diagnosable mental health disorder.
At the Texas Child Study Center, we provide assessment in treatment for an array of issues affecting youth and their families including:
- Anxiety Disorders
- Mood Disorders
- Attention-Deficit and Disruptive Behavior Disorders
- Autism Spectrum Disorders
- Developmental Delays
- Health Concerns Including:
- Overweight and Obesity
- Challenges facing youth with chronic or terminal illness
- Pain Management
- Grief and Loss
- School Consultation and Collaboration
- Neuropsychological and Emotional Assessments
These disorders interfere with the way youth think, feel and behave; their ability to learn and engage in relationships; their self-esteem; and their ability to evaluate situations and make healthy choices. In addition, families and schools providing care for children and adolescents with mental health disorders need support. The Texas Child Study Center strives to meet the needs of these youth by providing the highest quality of care for patients, including the engagement and support of their families, schools, and communities.
