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.
