The Services We Provide

Our clinic welcomes all individuals with respect for diversity broadly defined in terms of race, culture, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, religious beliefs, socioeconomic status, disability, gender identity, and other individual differences.

Rush University is training the next generation of healthcare providers. As a member of Rush University, Rush Neurobehavioral Center partners with local graduate programs to provide clinical training to doctoral level psychology students. Direct services at RNBC may be provided either directly by or with the support of a graduate student under the direct supervision of a licensed clinic psychologist.

Parents bring their children, teens and young adults to Rush NeuroBehavioral Center (RNBC) for a range of services, including:

  • Assessment Services
    • Neuropsychological & Psychological Assessment
    • Speech and Language Evaluation
  • Treatment Services
    • Psychotherapy/Behavioral Therapy
    • Parent Consultation
    • Speech and Language Therapy
    • Child Psychiatry
    • Social Skills Groups
  • Academic Services
    • Educational Consultation
    • Executive Function Tutoring

When a child arrives at RNBC, we follow these steps:

  1. We assess the child’s strengths and weaknesses. This thorough assessment process may include psychological testing, interviews, neurological or psychiatric evaluations, social and emotional assessment, speech and language testing, and other assessment methods.
  2. We share the results of our evaluation with the parents and, when appropriate, schools or referring professionals.
  3. We offer recommendations for treatment and management of the problem based on an understanding of the child, family, school, and peer relationships that exist.
  4. We provide case management utilizing the many services available within our multi-disciplinary clinical environment. We coordinate the necessary services to optimize the child’s development.

Starting Early Is Important

Parents who suspect their child may be showing signs of one of the neurobehavioral issues we address may hope or assume their child’s behavior is a phase that will pass. And indeed, not every small child who can talk for 45 minutes about a single subject has Autism, and not every extremely active child has ADHD.

However, when a constellation of symptoms appears that indicates a child may have a brain-based learning or behavior problem, it is best to begin intervention as soon as possible. Great improvements can result when a child is young and the brain is most able to adjust.
