Does my child need help?

Take these first steps to determine your child’s needs

When a child’s distress or pain is inside, it can be hard to know when it’s time to ask for help.

Here are a few questions to help you assess what’s best:

Does your child have

  • challenges sleeping, nightmares, a hard time falling asleep or staying asleep?
  • worries that interfere with playing, learning, or age-appropriate following directions
  • frequent feelings of anger, irritability, or rage?

Has your child:

  • experienced or witnessed a traumatic event?
  • experienced significant loss, such as divorce or a death in the family or friend circle?
  • been recommended for a behavioral, emotional or developmental assessment?

If you answered “yes” and your child is struggling at home, in school or in the community — Washburn Center is here to help.

Our licensed, compassionate therapists will walk alongside of you to develop an understanding of your child’s social, emotional and behavioral development and determine a path for healing.

Clinicians completing assessments are licensed child psychologists, social workers, professional counselors, practitioners, child psychiatrists or marriage and family therapists with expertise in a wide range of children’s mental health concerns, including: childhood depression, anxiety, ADHD and trauma.

Parents receive a thorough written summary with recommendations for services or activities that would be most helpful for the child’s individual needs.
