Problem Child? Anxiety in Children Depression in Children Autism

Adversity is a natural part of life.At some point, we all face difficulties, such as family problems, serious illness, a personal crisis, or a painful loss. The way we handle stress has to do with both our genetic predispositions and our learned behaviors.  


Here are some symptoms to look for if your child or adolescent seems to be having behavioral or emotional problems, such as acting out, depression or anxiety:



There are an number of things parents do to Help Children with Stress.  You may also want to refer to more specific information about Anxiety, Depression, Learning Disabilities and ADD/ADHD.  


If you have done enough reading and tried a number of things but are still concerned, Dr. Messenger can help you both understand and provide helpful interventions for your child or adolescent.  











The first step would be an Intervention Consultation, although for younger children we also offer an Early Childhood Evaluation.  Some parents have already has assessment completed but do not have a clear understanding of what it means and what they should do next, in which case a clear Test Interpretation would be warranted.


Once you take that first step, Interventions and Follow-up Solutions will help your child and your family get and stay on the right path.
