COPA works with patients and parents well into school ages to help monitor progress in all areas of psychological and behavioral development. If you have any concerns about your child's large and fine motor skills, his or her comfort in social situations, their ability to maintain focused attention, we encourage you to ask your pediatrician.
We'll examine your child, offer our observations and, if necessary, refer you to another skilled professional who can help to assess your child's development. You don't have to face your concerns alone. We're here for you.
