Wheeler’s Child and Adolescent Center of Excellence builds on nearly 50 years of expertise. We provide pediatric, dental and behavioral health care for infants, children, adolescents and young adults through a comprehensive continuum of services available in your home or at a convenient Wheeler location.

Our services for children and adolescents include early childhood programs like outpatient and in-home behavioral health services, special education and evaluation and assessment, foster care, and much more. Our services are LGBTQIA-responsive, as we offer several programs specifically for the LGBTQIA community.

For primary care providers, Wheeler is also one of three hubs in Connecticut for ACCESS Mental Health CT, helping providers meet the needs of children and adolescents with behavioral health issues.
