For infants and children with developmental, learning, or behavioral problems, our developmental pediatrics team has the training and expertise to evaluate, diagnosis and care for your child. Our team takes a close look at the medical and psychosocial aspects of developmental and behavioral problems to offer appropriate intervention and treatment options.
Additionally, our team follows babies who experience certain complications before birth, or shortly after. The babies can occasionally experience problems with vision, hearing, communication, behavior, or delays in mental or motor development. Most at-risk infants develop and grow normally, suffering no lasting effects from the early complications. Those few who do develop problems, however, can be identified early through our regular screenings.
At Blank Children's Hospital, we offer a Developmental Center to help children in need of evaluation, diagnosis and treatment for developmental-related conditions. Our multidisciplinary approach enables the collaboration of medical specialists, therapists, psychologists, and others to offer your family comprehensive care.
