“A child’s emotional well-being is intimately tied to that child’s ability to learn, grow, and thrive.”
~ Keith W. Caramelli, M.D., Board Certified Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist
As parents and as a community we want our children to have the best education possible. Yet academic success may elude a child who…
…suffers from depression
…is the victim of abuse
…struggles with ADHD
…lives in poverty
…wrestles with a learning disorder
Children suffering from mental health issues are at a much higher risk of dropping out of school, juvenile delinquency, and anti-social behaviors. The mental health professionals at Austin Child Guidance Center teach children how to deal with the emotional issues that impede their ability to learn.
Join us on Thursday, September 27, 2007 to hear the story of an extraordinary woman whose young child’s behavior at school and inability to learn appeared to predict a lifetime of frustration and failure. This mother will share how Austin Child Guidance Center helped her son overcome mental health issues that seemed insurmountable.
