Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Digital Tools

At the WonderLab, a digital innovation laboratory of NYU Langone’s Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, we build digital tools to help parents and caregivers make better informed decisions about their child’s emotions and behaviors. Our digital tools also collect novel population-level research data to bridge gaps in scientific knowledge about child mental health.

We focus on early childhood concerns like eating, anxiety, tantrums, and sleep. Challenges in these areas are common, yet many parents often wonder, “Should I worry about my child?”

Our digital platform called When to Wonder gives parents personalized, science-based advice to support children’s mental health and development from home. The When to Wonder: Picky Eating app available on the App Store® or Google Play is our first smartphone app and study on the When to Wonder digital platform.

The data we collect through the When to Wonder digital platform will contribute to creating a global body of knowledge about child emotions and behavior to help researchers and care providers better understand and support child development and mental health.
