Empirically Supported Treatments for Children with Selective Mutism & ADHD Fellowship
NYU Grossman School of Medicine offers a 12-month postdoctoral Fellowship in Applying and Developing Empirically Supported Treatments for ADHD, Related Neurodevelopmental Disorders, and Selective Mutism at the Child Study Center, part of Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone.
The fellowship, offered through the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, is intended for psychologists who have successfully completed an American Psychological Association–approved internship and wish to refine their skills in developing and conducting specially designed assessment protocols and individual, family, school, and group interventions for children and adolescents with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), related Neurodevelopmental Disorders, and Selective Mutism.
The coordinator of the fellowship is Richard Gallagher, PhD.
Fellows perform diagnostic evaluations including psychosocial, neuropsychological, and school observational assessments for selective mutism and ADHD and develop and provide cognitive remediation and individual and family treatment plans as part of our Selective Mutism Service.
Other clinical training experiences include participating in the Camp Courage summer intensive program and monthly weekend programs designed to improve the social functioning of children with selective mutism.
You are also involved in clinical research to improve organizational, time management, and planning skills for children with ADHD. As part of your research experience, you learn organizational skills training, an empirically proven intervention for elementary school children with ADHD, and develop plans to expand the intervention for use in clinical settings, after-school programs, and for children in middle and high school.
All empirical interventions you learn during your fellowship training have been developed and fully tested by Dr. Howard B. Abikoff, PhD, and Dr. Richard Gallagher at the Child Study Center.
Beyond clinical training and clinical research, you are also responsible for supervising undergraduates and psychology and psychiatry residents and educating parents and school professionals.
