The pediatric psychology department at Helen DeVos Children's Hospital provides evaluations and consultations on an inpatient and outpatient basis. Consultations primarily involve psychological and/or neuropsychological assessment of children from ages 4 months to young adulthood.

We serve as a consultation service to the different medical services and specialties throughout Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital, including, but not limited to:

Our psychology department is also actively involved in community outreach programs providing workshops and lectures to local community agencies and groups.

Payment and Appointment Information

We collect co-pays for visits in accordance with each individual child's insurance coverage. We also pre-authorize insurance coverage before scheduled visits.

Insurance permitting, a patient referred to the psychology clinic may see any one of our psychologists; however, we try to honor requests for an individual psychologist when possible.
