Why Yale Medicine?

  • Helping families, schools and therapists how best to support children
  • Leading research on child development, innovating programs to help children learn

For a parent, it can be painful and frustrating to watch a son or daughter struggle to keep pace with others at school–especially knowing that the child is bright, interested and motivated. Though there may be several reasons why a particular child doesn’t work to his or her potential, a learning disability may be at the root of the problem.

Yale Medicine's Child Study Center has a long history of providing comprehensive psychological evaluations that assess the whole child–including problem solving skills, academic skills, behavioral and adaptive skills, and social-emotional functioning.

Clinical Trials

New treatments for many conditions are tested in clinical trials, which ultimately bring lifesaving new drugs and devices to the patients who need them most. By participating in a clinical trial, you may get access to the most advanced treatments for your condition, and help determine their benefits for future patients.
