Dear Parents!

Unfortunately, in a rapidly changing society as ours, more and more children have behavioural disorders or emotional problems. These include major difficulties in their families, at kindergarden/school, problems with their friends, continuous grief and sadness, anxieties, change of eating habits, of sleeping habits or of social behaviour (e.g. aggressiveness).

Although most phenomena are of temporary nature, we recommend an early and quick evaluation in order to avoid negative consequences and to take the necessary next steps. Therefore, please do not hesitate to contact us and discuss your problems with your child with our experts. Only by starting necessary treatment as soon as possible we are able to achieve best therapeutic outcome for your child. We will also develop and initiate further assistance together with you.

Our highly trained interdisciplinary team is working with commitment and competence to accomplish best possible care for our young patients. The cooperation of physicians, psychologists, nurses, social workers, occupational therapists and physical therapists provides precise and comprehensive diagnosis and an individual treatment developed to meet the requirements of your child. We provide medication-free forms of therapy as well as pharmacotherapy if necessary.

In case you need our help, please contact our central office to make a first appointment.

With best regards

Prof. Dr. med. Veit Roessner
