Clinical Services at Rush Rush Educational and Emotional Health Evaluation Program for Children and Adolescents

 

The Rush Educational and Emotional Health Evaluation Program for Children and Adolescents offers a comprehensive approach to the diagnostic and treatment needs of children and adolescents with emotional, behavioral and learning difficulties that affect their basic educational needs. Such difficulties may include attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, depression, bipolar disorder, separation anxiety disorder, school refusal, generalized anxiety disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, learning disorders, and developmental disorders including autism and Asperger’s disorder.

The program is committed to helping children reach their full potential in the school setting. Understanding children's needs is the first step in developing appropriate educational programs and mental health interventions. The path toward success may be complex, and staff is available to assist with each step.

Services Provided

The program's multidisciplinary team provides a comprehensive, individualized assessment of a child’s areas of strength and weakness to recommend the most helpful mental health and school-based interventions. Areas of assessment may include the following:

  • A diagnostic evaluation conducted by child and adolescent psychiatrists to assess mental health concerns that can contribute to educational difficulty.
  • A testing battery administered by pediatric psychologists tailored to the child's needs. Areas assessed may include personality, intelligence, school achievement, language, memory, and visual-perceptual skills. Classroom observations are also available.
Clinical Team

The program's staff includes educational specialists, advanced practice nurses, pediatric psychologists, and child and adolescent psychiatrists. Staff members work with parents and school employees to develop appropriate individual education programs and facilitate children’s successful achievement at school. Staff also provide follow up care, as well as appropriate outside referrals.
