Growing up is difficult for all children. It’s even more challenging if a child’s brain isn't developing at the same speed as their friends and classmates, or if their brain just works a little differently.
If you or your child’s medical provider suspects that your child has a neurodevelopmental concern, your medical provider can refer your child to our Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics clinic. Our team of physicians, psychologists, licensed clinical social workers, patient navigators and nurse practitioners will complete an evaluation that includes diagnosis, treatment planning and other interventions specific to your child’s unique healthcare needs.
Our patients include children who have been diagnosed with and are seeking treatment for:
- Autism spectrum disorders.
- Behavioral problems related to chronic medical conditions, such as genetic disorders or congenital heart defects.
- Complex attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children 12 years of age or younger.
- Developmental delays.
- Intellectual disabilities.
If you are looking for assistance with a mental health concern, please contact our Department of Psychiatry.
Please review the referral guidelines BEFORE completing the form to ensure that your patient qualifies for referral to the Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics clinic.
