Project Details

Project Focus:
Clinical Services staff strives to develop and maintain exemplary service programs for clients to assure that client needs are met in a professional and ethical manner. Clinical Services serves as a clinical training site for USU students and is the identified child clinical training practicum site for doctoral level psychology students at USU.

Project Services:
1) CPD Clinical Services offers a strong interdisciplinary approach to assessment/evaluation and treatment services for children, youth , and adults with suspected learning or attention problems or developmental disabilities.
2) Service coordination is offered for clients and their families who have multiple needs.
3) Cost management support (sliding scale, reduced fee) is available.

Clinical Services now offers an Autism Spectrum Disorder Clinic that uses an interdisciplinary team approach to evaluate children & adults. The ASD team consists of a medical doctor, a psychologist, a speech/language pathologist, an occupational therapist, and a care coordinator.

A typical ASD evaluation includes: ADOS, ADI, SRS-2, cognitive, sensory, and speech & language assessment, audiology, and medical assessment.

Referrals for Clinical Services come from community agencies, school personnel, physicians, and private individuals.

Clinical Services staff also provide consultation services to community agencies (i.e., Sunshine Terrace). Clinical Services staff work cooperatively with other Center divisions and community agencies on direct client service programs, training, and research projects.
