Receive quarterly updates, articles and information on the System of Care in Monroe County.
Whether you've noticed changes in your child's behavior (suddenly or over time) or someone else has brought it to your attention, you know something just isn't right. These warning signs may provide you with some help in evaluating what is going on with your child:
When you are concerned about your child’s behavior, you should find a professional to evaluate your child, like your pediatrician. Your pediatrician can do a thorough medical examination and can talk with you about whether your child’s behavior is appropriate for the current age or if you might need a further psychological evaluation or counseling.
