Child and Adolescent Learning and Behavioral Diagnostic Center
JFS’ Learning and Behavioral Diagnostic Center provides in-depth and age-appropriate evaluations to assess a child’s emotional, social and educational development. For many families, a diagnosis can be the first step in mapping out a strategy to address concerns and a path for healing. Following an evaluation, a member of our team of experts will walk caretakers through the findings. Parents leave with a comprehensive understanding of their child’s developmental strengths and challenges, and are better prepared to meet their child’s unique emotional needs and access appropriate educational and mental health services.
The professionals completing assessments include clinical and developmental psychologists, educational diagnosticians, and psychological examiners, all with a wide range of expertise in children’s social, emotional and educational development.
Child, Family and Couples Counseling
Our team of therapists foster a safe and supportive environment for children, families and couples to engage in open and healthy communication, and develop the skills to be successful at home, in school, at work and in the community.
School-Based Counseling and Developmental Screenings
Our school-based counselors work with students individually and in group settings in school districts across St. Louis County to address a wide range of challenges, including anxiety, depression, life changes, grief, loss, other traumas and associated behavioral symptoms.
Early intervention helps children to eliminate, reduce or manage symptoms of life’s challenges. JFS also offers pre-kindergarten developmental screenings so all children get started on a path of healthy development.
Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
JFS provides low or no-cost diagnosis and medication management for school-aged children and adolescents. Our psychiatrist is skilled to address emotional and neurodevelopmental issues so that all children continue on a path of healthy development.
