Clinical Child Psychology

The mission of the Section of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics is to improve the lives of children with special needs (including those exposed to abuse and neglect) and their families through interdisciplinary services, research and training. The section provides an environment that encourages interdisciplinary activities in all of its programs. The services are primarily evaluative, with behavioral and speech therapy and psychotropic medical management provided. The section is building a network of relationships with counties throughout Oklahoma to help integrate its services with those provided locally. They have an extensive research program that includes health services, epidemiology, intervention efficacy and dissemination of evidence-based practice.

The diverse array of clinical services includes: interdisciplinary clinics for preschoolers with developmental delays or Autism Spectrum Disorders, school-aged children with developmental and learning problems, and children who have been exposed to abuse. They also offer single discipline services in Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics with a special emphasis on Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Neuro-psychology, Speech-Language Pathology, Behavioral Therapy with a special focus on Parent-Child Interaction Therapy, and Occupational Therapy. They continue to build special expertise in the areas of Autism and Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.
