Neurobehavioral Systems is a Pediatric Neuropsychiatry specialty group in Austin, Texas. Pediatric Neuropsychiatry refers to child/adolescent disorders that include both mental illness and a mild brain disorder.
Our clinical group specializes in the successful remediation of explosive or impulsively aggressive youth who have not previously responded to treatment. Children referred are carefully screened for clinical indicators which suggest an underlying brain disorder that may be causing or exacerbating behaviors.
