Do you want to learn more about childhood problems and concerns? What about other child concerns like developmental delays or child depression and anxiety? What about children who suffer from neurological concerns and issues like Acquired Brain Injury or Learning Disabilities?

Perhaps you wonder "how a child is doing." Or how a child is coping with specific challenges or problems and what you can do to support him or her?

Childhood issues and concerns  range from minor concerns to more serious problems and issues. Few parents escape worries about their child problems. Some problems are easily solved and not a huge concern. Other behavior problems in children are more serious. Parents are upset and worried and don't know where to turn. Their child is experiencing difficulty in one or more areas of child development (e.g. at school, in the community or with behavioral, social or emotional issues).


To help determine whether Dr. O'Connor can help, ask yourself the following:

  1. What child behavior problem worries me?
  2. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the most serious, how would you rate this problem? 
  3. How long has this problem been of concern?
  4. What do you think contributes to it?
  5. What have you done to solve the problem and how successful have your strategies been?
  6. Do you wonder if this problem is serious or something the child will outgrow?
  7. Where do you need help and what kind of support do you feel you need?
  8. Do you think you and/or your child could benefit from the expertise of a child psychologist?

Contacting Dr. O'Connor about a child problem is likely to help if the following apply:

  1. You rated the child behavior problem that worries you as serious (you rated it 7 or more out of 10).
  2. The problem has been ongoing and nothing you have done seems to work.
  3. You are unsure of whether the problem is serious or not, and you want to discuss your concerns with a child psychologist.
  4. Stress in one or more areas of the child's life (e.g. family problems or problems at school, with other children or in the community) is contributing to the behavior problem that worries you.
  5. The child behavior problem is contributing to significant stress in the child and/or in the parents and family.
  6. You feel you need help to address the child or adolescent problem that worries you. You can't do it on your own and you feel a child psychologist can help.
