SPEECH LANGUAGE THERAPY

At RNBC, we provide face-to-face and virtual speech and language therapy to children of many ages.  Services may address needs in the areas of expressive or receptive language, social-pragmatic language use, articulation/motor speech, fluency, or cognitive aspects of communication. A speech language pathologist honors the attention, sensory, and communication needs of each client, creating achievable plans of care and targeting therapy goals through creative, multi-sensory activities for the clinic and at home. The clinician incorporates consultation and encourages collaboration with a child’s team of professionals as an integral component of the treatment plan.

CHILD PSYCHIATRY

Child and Adolescent psychiatrists evaluate, diagnose and treat psychiatric disorders that may impact function at school and home. The evaluation will provide recommendations for multiple avenues of treatment, such as psychotherapy and sometimes medications. The ultimate choice of whether to start a recommended medication is up to the family. The psychiatrist will follow the progress of children receiving treatment and adjust medications, when necessary, to optimize the child’s outcomes.

PARENT CONSULTATION

Parent consultation services are offered individually and in group formats, based on clinician availability and community interest. 

Our clinicians offer a variety of clinical services to teach parents tools that enhance their abilities to reinforce the positive clinical gains their children are making in individual therapy. Our services broadly fall into two categories:

Skill Building: Our clinical team provides evidence-based interventions for building parenting skills (i.e., Parent Management Training) to better manage child emotional and behavioral challenges.

Supportive Services: Parenting van be challenging, and our clinicians are available to not only teach new skills, but also to help parents learn ways to improve their own emotional responding and identify and address cognitive “sticking points.” Collectively, these two services allow our clinicians to provide individualized and tailored support for each family.
