Behavioral Concerns

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.

MENTAL CRISIS - If a parent has serious concerns regarding their child who is in a mental or behavioral crisis, call the Deschutes County crisis hot line, available 24 hours a day at (800) 875-7364. If the child is having suicidal thoughts or showing acute mental behaviors, call 9-1-1 for help.
