Developmental Pediatrics

About Us

We tailor each patient’s treatment plan according to his or her unique needs.  We may recommend a consultation with a developmental pediatrician, lab tests or other services depending on the patient’s assessment.

Our social workers provide intake appointments to obtain a detailed developmental history and ensure patients are receiving necessary services while they wait for their appointments with the physician and/or their evaluation appointment with the psychologist.

Our Specialties

We specialize in children and adolescents who are suspected of having one of the following developmental disorders:

-Global Developmental Delay

-Motor Delay

-Autism Spectrum Disorder

-Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

-Intellectual Disability

-Specific Learning Disability

-Communication Disorders

Our interdisciplinary team has expertise in the diagnosis and management of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).  They can provide evaluations with the most up to date testing for ASD, which includes the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS-2) and the Autism Diagnostic Interview (ADI-R).

Our psychologists provide focused psychological assessments designed to assist the developmental team in understanding the unique developmental, cognitive, social and emotional strengths and weaknesses of our patients.  Autism-specific evaluations provide a comprehensive, team-based approach consistent with current research and clinical guidelines.
