E. Wildman, Ph.D. is a licensed psychologist who specializes
in the evaluation and treatment of children and adolescents.
With over 20 years of experience, Dr. Wildman specializes in
testing for and treating ADHD, school learning problems, behavior/conduct
problems, fears/anxiety, depression, autism/Asperger's disorder/Pervasive
Developmental Disorder (PDD), and social skills training. He
collaborates with parents, teachers, and other caregivers to
understand the child's problem and develop specific, practical
ways for children and adolescents to learn, change attitudes
and behaviors, and improve their daily functioning at home,
in school, and in the community. He uses evidence-based treatment
methods in coordination with the efforts of other providers
involved with the child, such as pediatricians and schools.
Dr. Wildman received his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the
APA-accredited program at the University of Southern Mississippi
in 1986. He interned at the University of Mississippi Medical
Center in Jackson, Mississippi, collaborating in and publishing
studies of social skills training with children and adolescents
while there. A long-time resident of northeast Ohio, Dr. Wildman's
professional career has been devoted to the evaluation and treatment
of individuals with ADHD and behavioral and school learning
problems, as well as autism spectrum disorders and anxiety disorders.
He is an adjunct faculty member in the Department of Psychology
at Kent State University, having supervised doctoral-candidate
students on their clinical work in various child and adolescent
mental health settings. Dr. Wildman is the author of several
professional research articles and has presented talks at regional
and national conferences. He has served as a psychology consultant
to several school districts and other agencies in the area.
Recently, he was a member of the Advisory Committee for the
Autism Diagnosis Education Pilot Project, which was funded by
a grant to the Ohio Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics
by the Ohio Department of Health.
Children and adolescents with ADHD, social anxiety, Asperger's
disorder, PDD-NOS, and others often experience difficulty in
making and keeping friends and socializing successfully with
their peers. To help with these concerns, in addition to working
individually with children and teens, Dr. Wildman offers groups
to teach peer-relevant social skills. In addition, parents often
feel challenged by their children's social difficulties and
behavioral problems, such as noncompliance with requests, temper
tantrums, fighting, arguing/whining, and interrupting others.
Dr. Wildman also leads groups to help parents learn why these
problems occur and what they can do to help their children improve
their social skills and their behavior.
