Social, emotional and behavioral concerns identified in early childhood can be predictive of later concerns. From infancy to age five, how children cope with stress, frustrations, or change provides a glimpse of potential future concerns. The behaviors may be signs and symptoms of mental health concerns or a signal that the child needs help developing better coping skills. BESDC has experienced child psychologists who can do a developmental evaluation and identify typical developmental concerns or severe developmental disabilities (autism, intellectual disability, etc.). All children benefit from early identification and intervention.
BESDC offers a wide array of individualized and family-focused behavioral services. Our trained, licensed and experienced staff of clinicians in the Washington, D.C. and Montgomery County, MD area is available for on-site, office and clinic visits.
As a child develops new skills and interacts with different settings mental health concerns can arise that impact their family and academic lives. Children and adolescents need proper individualized treatment from licensed mental health professionals capable of working with all aspects of the child’s life. BESDC’s experienced child-focused clinicians can identify developmental delays early to optimize a child’s potential. BES can identify severe developmental disabilities early (autism, pervasive development disorder, intellectual deficits, etc.) and implement interventions early. By working with parents and the child we ensure that all caregivers learn how to best teach the child.
A child’s education will set the course for their entire professional, family and community life. It is important that any academic or psychological concerns are identified and treated early. So, BESDC has developed a complete line of academic- and school-focused psychological services that including working with children, parents and teachers as needed.
