The Division of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics strives to provide excellent care for children with developmental delays/concerns, autism, ADHD, ADD, Down syndrome, other genetic syndromes associated with developmental delay, learning disabilities, intellectual disabilities, fussy babies, and/or behavior concerns.
A multidisciplinary team of experienced healthcare providers will care for your child before, during and after your initial visit. This team approach makes it easier for you to see different providers under one roof and often in the same visit. Each visit is centered on your child and their primary developmental pediatrician, the team that is built around your family is focused on supporting your child’s growth and development as they age. Our developmental pediatricians focus on seeing children while they are still quite young, often before they start school in order to initiate and establish a relationship to best support your child, you and your family.
