Our team of developmental and behavioral pediatricians and pediatric psychologists has special training to address the behavioral, developmental, and/or learning needs of children. Our specialists care for pediatric patients with a wide range of developmental disorders and abilities, including, but not limited to:

We work with you to help understand your child’s health condition and connect you with community resources. During a visit with one of our specialized pediatricians or psychologists, we’ll discuss your child’s development, abilities, behaviors, or any other learning, social, or attention concerns you may have. Our specialists will gather as much information about your child’s health condition as possible before making a diagnosis. This may include developmental and behavioral testing and/or psychotherapy. Our team will then work with you and your child to determine the best treatment options available.

Patients and families are required have a physician referral to the attention concerns, chronic pain, developmental concerns, feeding disorders, motor difficulties, and sleep disorders clinics. A physician referral is not required for the behavioral or learning disorders clinic.
