The Children’s Learning Clinic (CLC) is a scientist-practitioner training clinic located in the Sheila C. Johnson Center for Human Services. We are affiliated with the Youth-Nex Center to Promote Effective Youth Development and the Curry School of Education's Ph.D. Program in Clinical and School Psychology. Research in the CLC focused on understanding the relationship among cognitive, behavioral, and educational outcomes for children with ADHD within the context of positive youth development. The goal of CLC research is to translate these findings into effective treatments for children with ADHD that build their capabilities and promote positive outcomes.

The CLC is not accepting new clients. Previous clients in need of reports may contact the Sheila Johnson Center to request copies. Other needs of prior CLC clients may be directed to Dr. Schaefer at
