"The Columbus Behavioral Health Clinic operates across the street from the Columbus Community Hospital in Columbus, Nebraska. It was the first of the behavioral health clinics established in 1998 by the Psychology Department of the Munroe-Meyer Institute. Since its beginning, over 25 students of Behavioral Health, including 6 post-doctoral fellows, have trained with on-site Columbus Community Hospital Pediatricians and Department of Psychology faculty from the Munroe-Meyer Institute.
The primary staff is Dr. Josh Needelman. He earned his Ph.D. in School Psychology from The University of Southern Mississippi, and completed an internship at the Munroe-Meyer Institute at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. He is currently completing his postgraduate work while staffing the clinic in Columbus. Dr. Needelman practices as a generalist but has expertise in autism, noncompliance, and academic evaluation and intervention.
Dr. Needelman provides two days of outpatient services weekly, on Wednesday afternoons and Thursdays. As an academic unit at UNMC, MMI provides advanced disciplinary and interdisciplinary educational programs to students in over 15 disciplines and programs. The Institute’s mission includes a strong commitment to applied and basic research conducted by faculty and staff in all of MMI’s disciplines and programs related to the prevention and treatment of genetic disorders and developmental disabilities.
MMI provides state-wide technical assistance and consultation to public schools and other programs providing services to children, youth and adults with disabilities. We look forward to being a resource for you and your family."
