Infant/preschool clinic

The Infant/Preschool Mental Health Clinic is a subspecialty clinic that conducts comprehensive multidisciplinary assessments of children under the age of 6 with symptoms of behavioral and emotional problems and/or developmental delays or impairments.

Children and their primary caretakers are evaluated in a four-session play assessment conducted over four weeks. Detection and treatment of mental health/developmental disorders at this very early stage may diminish future mental health problems.

For more information, please call 314-286-1700.
