Children's Learning Clinic

Upgrading the science and technology of pediatric mental health care ™

Information for Parents

We are currently accepting children into our research clinic.

Caregivers of participating children will receive a comprehensive psychoeducational report detailing their child's intellectual, cognitive, and academic strengths and difficulties. All parents will meet with our Director, a licensed psychologist and expert in children's mental health, approximately 4 weeks after testing is complete to review our findings and discuss specific strategies for strengthening your child's strengths and improving your child's areas of difficulty.

We are currently accepting children ages 8-12 who meet any of the following criteria:

  1. Children with suspected attention, learning, or behavior problems. We provide no cost comprehensive evaluations for children with suspected attention problems and/or ADHD in the context of our research studies.
  2. Children with ADHD. Children who have been previously diagnosed with ADHD are also eligible to participate. Children complete all of the same activities as other children in our research clinic, and their parents meet with Dr. Kofler and receive the same written report. All at no cost to participating families. Children diagnosed with ADHD through our clinic may be eligible to participate in our ongoing treatment studies. We are investigating new, non-medication treatments for ADHD.
  3. Children without significant mental health concerns. Evaluations are also available to families who don't have major concerns, but want to learn more about their child's unique pattern of strengths and challenges, and/or want to give their child the opportunity to learn about and contribute to scientific research. Parents interested in an evaluation of their child's strengths and challenges can choose to participate in our full evaluation and receive the same comprehensive report described above at no cost. Families more interested in contributing to research can choose a shorter option that may require just one visit to our clinic.

Families may qualify for CLC assessment and treatment services regardless of insurance or ability to pay. CLC services are provided within the context of our scientist-practitioner research training clinic. There is currently no cost for our services (costs are covered through our grants from the National Institute of Mental Health and the support of the FSU Psychology Department).
