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 3-13 years of age with suspected developmental behavioral disabilities, as well as medication management and follow-up care. Conditions commonly seen in our clinic include:
Once a referral is received from your child’s primary care provider, a packet of information will be mailed to your home. We request completion of this information by you and your child’s teacher as well as any previous academic or developmental testing for our providers to review prior to the initial appointment.
As part of the evaluation families will also receive recommendations for treatment or referrals to other specialists (such as, therapies, genetics, nutrition, and so on) as needed.
