Children’s Programs

We perform comprehensive neuropsychological assessments. The assessments look at every area of cognitive functioning including: executive functioning and attention, language functioning, memory, academics, social perception, sensory seeking behavior, fine motor skills, overall intellectual skills, and emotional functioning.


Assessment

Our evaluation of ADHD is comprised of a parent interview; direct testing of intelligence, executive functioning, and attention; and completion of behavioral questionnaires by both parents and teachers. The interviews present questions about the nature and onset of current problems, the child's mental, physical, and emotional development, and the home and school environments.

If ADHD is suspected along with other mental health difficulties, a psychiatric evaluation is available. 

Treatment

Our treatment options for children are age dependent and include social skills and organizational training.

Social Skills Group

Designed for four- to six-year-olds, the Social Skills group at Mount Sinai Hospital’s Division for ADHD and Learning Disorders is based on the Incredible Years Dina Dinosaur program. This is a treatment module for children with ADHD, oppositional behavior, anxiety, and depression. It is delivered in one-hour weekly small group sessions for 20 weeks. The program targets challenging behaviors and promotes increased social emotional learning and self-control. It has been evaluated in randomized control group studies and found to be effective in improving children’s social emotional competence, emotion regulation, and school readiness, as well as reducing behavior problems.

Organizational Skills Training

Designed for elementary and middle school students, our evidence-based Organizational Skills Training (OST) focuses on improving key skills in children. Although many participants have been diagnosed with ADHD, this is not a requirement. We offer the treatment individually or in one-hour weekly small-group sessions for 16 weeks. OST utilizes behavioral skills training to improve organization in the school and at home, through handling assignments, keeping track of materials, time management, and task planning. The program involves parents and the student’s teachers to deliver a holistic, workable plan that can be applied to both home and school settings.

We also provide parent management training, parent-child interaction therapy, and school consultations.
