The Gevirtz School adheres to a scientist-practitioner training model; therefore, heavy emphasis is placed on developing academic, research, and practitioner knowledge and skills in our graduate students. To that end we offer numerous clinical services actively working with clients in our region.
Hosford Counseling and Psychological Services Clinic
Residents of Santa Barbara and Ventura counties, as well as UCSB faculty and staff, may receive mental health services at the Hosford Clinic. All services are offered on a sliding scale basis (insurances are not accepted). Clinicians work with children, adolescents, and adults in individual, family, and group therapy settings.
Koegel Autism Center
Families with a child with autism that live in Santa Barbara, Ventura, and San Luis Obispo counties may set up services through a regional center. In this program, clinicians will train you in pivotal response treatment and help design a program that meets your family’s needs. The Center also offers an assessment clinic that provides state-of-the-art diagnostic, developmental, and psychological assessment services for individuals with or suspected of having an autism spectrum disorder (including Asperger's Syndrome).
The Tina Hansen McEnroe & Paul V. McEnroe Reading & Language Arts Clinic
This clinic serves 1st through 6th grade school students who are experiencing reading and language difficulties. It offers a positive tutorial environment that nurtures students to become life-long readers while helping develop their skills to meet increased reading demands in secondary school, while providing university and research-based literacy and reading assessments and interventions. The clinic also brings a special focus to children diagnosed with mild to moderate learning disabilities or at risk for learning disabilities.
