Is it just a rebellious phase or is there something wrong with your child’s development? The teen years are especially difficult for children and parents due to the child’s developmental processes. And determining if the behavior you’re noting is anxiety or just normal teenage behavior. High Desert Pediatrics offers behavioral assessments for teenagers to help parents make the right health care decisions.
Just a Phase or Disorder?
It can be difficult to determine if your teenager’s behavior is normal for their development or if there’s an underlying problem that needs medical attention. Behavioral health issues include:
- Eating disorders
- And more.
Your child can’t change their behavior if there’s an underlying issue that’s directly related to their mental health. And diagnosis can be difficult. This is why High Desert Pediatrics offers teenage behavioral health assessments. Our personalized approach to care means we get to know your family, their values and your child. Pediatricians can help find the appropriate resources and make the referrals for optimal care.
Creating Solutions for Teenagers
Parents don’t have all the answers, but they don’t have to face crises alone. High Desert Pediatrics is available to help parents and teenagers find the answers they need about behavioral problems. Assessments allow our board-certified pediatricians to identify the problems, help parents understand and create solutions for the best possible outcome.
We also provide the appropriate referrals to psychiatrists and therapists. If medication is involved, we’ll work with the professionals you trust with your child’s mental health to ensure that your teenager’s development continues without physical side effects. You don’t have to face it alone. Contact us today and schedule your appointment!
