Services for Military Families

Beginning in 2009, the Department of Behavioral Psychology at the Kennedy Krieger Institute established a program to provide services to the military-connected children and families of Maryland and surrounding areas. We established two child behavioral health clinics near the Fort Meade Army installation. We staff these clinics with psychologists who understand military culture and the unique challenges that military families experience. Our clinics provide services to over 800 military-connected children each year. We are network providers for TRICARE Prime as well as the TRICARE US Family Health Plan. Our services are family-focused and cover the spectrum of child behavior and developmental concerns.

Department of Behavioral Psychology

The Department’s goal is to help children attain and sustain adaptive, healthy, positive behaviors. The Department is committed to providing the best possible outcomes for children, families, their support systems and their communities through assessment, treatment, parent training, educational and consultative services. We provide outpatient assessment and treatment services to over 6,000 families annually at our facilities on the Johns Hopkins Medical Campus, in Baltimore’s Harbor East neighborhood, in Columbia (Howard County), and in Odenton (Anne Arundel County). Our inpatient programs, the Neurobehavioral Unit and Pediatric Feeding Disorders Program, serve as models of treatment in a medical setting.
