Clinical Behavior Analysis
Mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders in childhood can cause long-term problems that may affect the health and well-being of children and families. Treating a child’s mental health problems as soon as possible can help children reduce problems at home, in school, and in forming future relationships. We understand that for parents determining whether or not your child is experiencing depression or anxiety can be tough. Thats why the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children (ages 5 to 12) with behavioral disorders receive behavior therapy for treatment first before trying any prescribed medication.
It is important that parents understand the warning signs including any sudden change in mood or behavior, or if they notice that their child is struggling in day to day tasks. If the parents are concerned, parent should seek professional help from their child’s healthcare provider as a first step. Sometimes, health problems such as poor sleep, trouble breathing, poor vision, difficulty hearing, or learning problems can cause behavioral or emotional symptoms, or make them worse. Your child’s healthcare provider may want to find out if your child has any health problems before referring your child for behavior therapy.
