The Child & Youth Development Clinic at Western: Children first for a stronger community
Currently there are thousands of children in the community whose needs are not being met. Following our motto of “Children first for a stronger community”, the clinic provides high quality, affordable and comprehensive psychological assessment and intervention designed to understand and enhance the abilities of children and youth ages 3-18. We design evidence-based interventions tailored to meet the specific needs of each child and work collaboratively with families and educators to build a shared understanding of how to best support each child. The CYDC is also self-referring so it is accessible to all.
It is also an interdisciplinary training facility for graduate students in the School and Applied Child Psychology, Clinical Psychology, Speech and Language Pathology, and Social Work programs. These students get real world training, and work together as a team to provide one comprehensive plan for each family. The CYDC enables us to provide a rich and diverse set of services that no single health-care professional can offer.
Western Alumni is committed to accessibility for persons
with disabilities. Please contact us if you have any particular accommodation
requirements or require information in an alternate format.
