Care and Support Updates

Updates on the latest clinical offerings from our centers in New York City and the San Francisco Bay Area.

Learning how to form peer relationships is a critical skill for kids, and one that they will be using — and refining — all their lives.

Some kids have a harder time making these connections, particularly children with social and behavioral disorders like ADHD or autism spectrum disorder. While parents can’t make friends for their children, they can help them develop and practice key social skills.

That’s where the Child Mind Institute can help. Our Children’s Friendship Training program (highlighted below) provides evidence-based clinical care in a supportive environment where children and their caregivers practice important socialization skills among peers.

To learn more about treatment options or to schedule an evaluation, please reach out to us today.

Sensory Processing FAQ

Kids with sensory processing issues experience too much or too little stimulation through their senses. They may also have difficulty integrating sensory information — for example, things that they see and hear simultaneously, like a person speaking, might seem out of sync for them. These problems can be tough on kids and get in the way of their learning, friendships, and daily lives.
