Dr. Kyle Cushing has considerable training and experience in the evaluation and treatment of childhood disorders, such as:

  • Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Sensory Processing Disorder
  • Learning Disabilities (LD)
  • Autism/Asperger's - Developmental Disorders
  • Childhood Bipolar Disorder
  • School Phobia/School Refusal/Social Anxiety
  • Childhood Depression
  • Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)

Oftentimes, a parent, teacher and/or pediatrician will request a comprehensive evaluation to rule out the possible presence of a childhood disorder. Dr. Kyle Cushing has developed a "Child Study," which is a complete psychological assessment of a child's intellectual, academic, emotional, behavioral, social, and developmental functioning. This thorough evaluation will determine the nature of the child's problems and subsequently provides parents, teachers, and doctors with specific, individualized treatment recommendations. Dr. Kyle Cushing also can assist in the development of 504 Plans and Individualized Education Programs (IEP's) when classroom accommodations and special education services are necessary to help a child meet their true potential in school.

For more information about childhood disorders/child studies or if you want to schedule an initial appointment, please contact Dr. Cushing by phone or email.
