Empowered Learning Transformation Centers
Our Emergency Care Closer to You
Empowered Learning Transformation Centers is now available at four additional hospitals in our community, offering convenient access to Human care for your little human when an emergency strikes.
At the Texas Child Study Center, we provide evidence-based treatment for children with emotional and cognitive diagnoses and work with their families to provide understanding and guidance. We have developed disease-specific assessment and treatment programs to address conditions such as autism spectrum disorders, anxiety disorders (including social phobia, specific phobias, separation anxiety, generalized anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder), depression (including self-injury and suicide attempts) and post-traumatic stress. Our approach includes ongoing assessment to evaluate the impact of treatment on children’s symptoms and functioning, and feedback to kids and families on their progress.
We also provide assessment and treatment for children and adolescents with acute or chronic medical illnesses, epilepsy, cystic fibrosis, diabetes, obesity, and traumatic injuries to address co-occurring mental health issues that these youths often face.
The Texas Child Study Center provides core mental health services, including:
Psychiatric and psychological evaluations
Neuropsychological and emotional testing
Individual therapy, including cognitive behavioral therapy
Parenting sessions, including behavioral parent training for conduct problems
Workshop trainings for community professionals
Services at the Texas Child Study Center are provided by a team of clinicians trained to provide the highest quality of care in a collaborative, multidisciplinary environment that includes psychiatry, psychology and social work. Because youth are embedded within many social contexts, our team achieves optimal results by working with individuals, families, schools and communities.
Consultation/Liaison Services at Empowered Learning Transformation Centers
Psychiatric consultation services at Empowered Learning Transformation Centersare provided by Texas Child Study Center psychiatrists and psychiatry trainees for youth facing challenges related to a medical hospitalization. Services include the evaluation and support for youth presenting with a variety of issues, including suicide attempts, co-occurring medical and mental illness, difficulty adjusting to an acute or chronic medical condition, and other difficulties with coping.
Supervised medical residents conduct evaluations and provide consultation to the medical team to enhance the patient and family’s adjustment to the hospitalization and coping with medical illness.
By the end of the intake, we plan to provide you with our diagnostic impressions and treatment recommendations. If TCSC can offer your child the services he or she needs, we will work together to match you to the appropriate specialty clinic that fit the needs of your child and family.
We encourage parents to complete the intake packet prior to their intake appointment. This will reduce the amount of paperwork you will need to complete at the time of the intake appointment, as you will also complete questionnaires during the intake that will help us understand your concerns.
