Child development is complex, adventurous, and for some parents, frustrating. As children become older, they change rapidly both cognitively and emotionally. This includes physical growth, varied social interactions, and intellectual progress—all in a relatively short amount of time. These transformations are hard for children and adolescents to cope with, but a child’s development also presents challenges to the parents. It’s the stewardship of every parent to concern themselves with the health of happiness of their kids. And at Early Life in South Jordan (with service near Salt Lake City and Draper, UT) and Valencia, California, our child psychologists and therapists are completely focused on helping children and their parents.
But how much should parents worry? It can be hard to know whether a child has an emotional, cognitive or achievement issue, or if they’re merely going through a phase. Conversely, what many parents consider “abnormal” is actually normal; parents are typically over-concerned, and for good reason. The importance of a child’s early years cannot be overstated. Seeking help from a child psychologist in Salt Lake City, Draper, South Jordan, or California is the first step toward ensuring the mental health of your son or daughter. If there is a problem, discovering and treating it early will eliminate or lessen their issues later in life. At Early Life Child Psychology and Education Center, we provide consultations and child testing toassess whether your child’s development is on the right track.
After consulting the parents, we’ll create a customized treatment program to put your child on the path toward wellness.
