The Child Clinical track provides solid grounding in both typical child development and developmental psychopathology, as well as in a broad range of clinical assessment and intervention techniques.
The Child Study Centre in the Psychology Department provides a training and research centre for students. Centre facilities are used for course-related practicum experiences in child assessment and therapy interventions. The Centre also provides a research setting used by both students and faculty.
Training in psycho-educational assessment is also provided on campus at the Psychological Services & Research Centre (PSRC). In addition, the Summit Centre is affiliated with the University of Windsor and also provides training and research opportunities for students. The Summit Centre provides assessment and intensive early intervention services to preschool children with autism, using Applied Behaviour Analysis.
Recent graduates of the Child Clinical track are employed in children's mental health centres, hospitals, school boards and universities.
