Psychologist for children
We offer services to children under school age and their families in situations in which the support from child health clinic or day-care centre is not sufficient. Our aim is to support the development of children, to detect their need for support at an early stage and to provide guidance and advice to their parents. If you have any concerns regarding your child's development, talk to your child health clinic nurse or day-care staff. Children's rehabilitation services require a referral, which you can obtain from your child health clinic or day-care centre, for example. If you have concerns regarding your child who is preschool or school-age, please contact pupil welfare. Child rehabilitation service psychologists work with preschool-age children and their families if the child is in need of further examinations in specialised health care. Our offices are located in Espoon keskus, Leppävaara and Olari. Our services are confidential and free of charge. Content of our work · We begin our work with a joint discussion.
