Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics
Care and Support for Developmental and Behavioral Differences
Developmental pediatricians are highly trained and experienced in identifying a range of developmental and behavioral differences. They can evaluate your child's overall development, provide a diagnosis and recommend specific treatment plans. Developmental pediatricians also can coordinate medical evaluations or prescribe medications when appropriate. They often act as an advocate during school planning, providing documentation and support to make sure your child receives needed services.
Our Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics practitioners provide medical evaluations for children birth through 18 years of age with suspected intellectual disabilities, developmental delays, suspected autism spectrum disorder and treatment of complex attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Our team also provides medical consultation service, recommendations for follow up care and coordination of appropriate resources for patients and their family. Conditions commonly seen in our clinic include:
- Complex Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
- Autism Spectrum Disorders
- Developmental delay
- Down Syndrome
- Medical disorders affecting the child’s development
- Behavior concerns related to the above diagnoses
Once a referral is received from your child’s primary care provider, our nursing staff reviews it to determine the appropriate next steps and resources.
