Division of Behavioral & Developmental Pediatrics

The Division of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics has a dedicated team of Academic Clinicians who provide outstanding specialty clinical care in our main campus and satellite locations. We have national leaders in Medical Student and Resident Education in our group. We also conduct research and provide mentorship for research in developmental and behavioral pediatrics.

The Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics Division offers comprehensive consultation, evaluation and treatment for children, birth to age 21, with developmental and behavioral problems which include autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, prematurity and learning difficulties.  We communicate regularly with the family, referring physician and school system to insure best outcomes for children referred to our practice.
