The Learning and Emotional Assessment Program (LEAP) at Massachusetts General Hospital assesses students and children ages 2 to 22 who have developmental difficulties and consults with their parents, teachers and care providers.
Our clinical professionals have devoted their training, research and clinical practice to acquiring the specialized skills needed to assess children with learning disabilities, psychological and developmental disorders. Our team loves working with children and has a natural ability to put them at ease.
The Department of Psychiatry offers a depth and breadth of resources available at few other hospitals or psychiatric centers, meaning your child receives comprehensive, state-of-the-art care without leaving our campus. Services available at the MassGeneral Hospital for Children include:
- Speech, voice and language therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Physical therapy
- Pediatric neurology services
- Psychological and psychiatric care within the Department of Child Psychiatry
MassGeneral Hospital for Children also includes several other locations in Greater Boston. For example, we collaborate with our colleagues at the hospital's Lurie Center for Autism to help children with autism and other developmental disorders.
