A traumatic or chronically stressful event can be many things beyond abuse or neglect. As the number of childhood traumas and chronic stress experiences increase, the risk for health problems in adulthood increases.
Children who have experienced trauma and chronic stress WITHOUT treatment are:
- 3x more likely to have serious employment problems.
- 3x more likely to experience depression.
- 4x more likely to become an alcoholic.
- 15x more likely to commit suicide.
The effects of trauma can impact:

ONLINE SCREENING TOOL: Take the free online screening - this short, four question tool will determine the impact trauma exposure has had on the child. This will help determine if more targeted examination is warranted.
COMPREHENSIVE TRAUMA ASSESSMENT: After taking the free online screening, an in-depth examination may be required. This comprehensive trauma assessment includes 3-4 clinical batteries to explore the impact and identify the best treatment.
MULTIDISCIPLINARY TEAM ASSESSMENT: After taking the comprehensive trauma assessment this multidisciplinary team assessment may be needed. This assessment includes psychological, speech and language, occupational therapy and neurological metrics to identify the impact the trauma has had on the child.
