Outpatient assessment and psychotherapy clinics provide evaluations of deaf and hard of hearing individuals ranging in age from infancy to young adulthood. All services apply professional and specialized expertise to understanding development and function, and emphasize targeted treatment recommendations to families, schools, and other professionals in order to maximize each individual’s potential. We primarily focus on deaf and hard of hearing individuals as well as individuals who are part of deaf and hard of hearing families/communities including Child of Deaf Adults (CODA).
Common referral questions include concerns with autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder, learning disability, and mood concerns. Psychologists on the team regularly engage in consultation services with other medical professionals and educational teams within the context of multidisciplinary care. Psychologists on the team are involved with pre and post cochlear implant evaluations. In some cases VR based referrals and independent educational evaluations (IEE) are accepted. All of the clinicians on the team are fluent in American Sign Language (ASL) and English.
All psychologists in the Gallaudet Psychology clinic are licensed in the following states: District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia and they currently hold PsyPact Licensure which allows opportunities for telehealth appointments depending on the individual’s insurance companies.
Doctoral students in psychology, pre-doctoral interns, and post-doctoral psychology fellows work under the supervision of licensed psychologists in accordance with state regulations. Psychologists on the team are culturally, linguistically, and medically competent to work with a wide variety of deaf and hard of hearing individuals from various backgrounds and communication modalities.
Note: We are currently functioning separately from the university’s counseling and psychological services and we are focusing on serving individuals from the community within and outside of the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia (DMV) area.
