The Child Assessment Clinic, located at the Child Study Center, specializes in comprehensive diagnostic evaluations for children and adolescents ages 16 years of age and younger. The focus of our diagnostic clinic is two-fold: neurodevelopmental disorders in children (such as autism spectrum disorder, learning disorders, intellectual disability, and ADHD), as well as mood and anxiety disorders. However, we also conduct assessments for other problems in children including aggressive behavior, school problems, and other emotional problems.

Our evaluations are comprehensive and include behavioral observations, use of established diagnostic tools, and clinical interviews. As a research-based clinic, we use scientifically supported (evidence-based) measurements and we also use what we learn in the clinic for the pursuit of research in order to inform the field and improve our clinical assessment practices. Evaluations are conducted primarily by advanced doctoral students in VT’s clinical psychology concentration, under the direct supervision of licensed clinical psychologists – Dr. Thomas Ollendick and Dr. Rosanna Breaux.

We have a standard fee, but offer a sliding scale for families in financial need. For appointments or more information, please call (540) 231-8276 or email us at

For individuals or families interested in a comprehensive diagnostic evaluation for adolescents and adults age 17 or older, please contact the Psychological Services Center at or 540-231-6914.
