The Center for Neurodevelopmental Disabilities houses two specialty clinics serving children and adolescents. Our staff of developmental-behavioral pediatricians, clinical child psychologist and social worker focus on developmental, behavioral and learning issues in children from infancy through young adulthood.
Neurodevelopmental Disabilities Clinic (NDD Clinic)
The NDD Clinic serves families whose children have been diagnosed with developmental and behavioral problems.
An initial neurodevelopmental evaluation will include a one hour visit with child and parents. A developmental-behavioral pediatrician will assess the child, and interview parents about a child’s developmental history, habits, abilities and challenges. We understand that children’s development and behavior happen first and foremost in the context of the family. Our physicans seek to understand the issue from the family’s view as well as the effects on both the child and the entire family. If needed, follow up visits or additional diagnostic testing may be scheduled. Once the evaluation is completed the physician will provide a full report and a specific diagnosis when appropriate.
Neurodevelopmental Disabilities staff advocate for their patients with developmental and behavioral problems by working closely with schools, preschools, and therapy providers. Families may also receive recommendations for treatment or referrals to agencies that fund and provide such treatments, help finding therapists, and guidance in choosing educational settings.
NDD Clinic physicians are experts in managing neurodevelopmental disorders and behavior problems in children, including:
- Autism spectrum disorders
- Developmental delays
- Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder
- Other developmental disorders
Young Adult Transition Clinic (YATC)
The YATC serves adolescents and young adults and their families as they make the transition from pediatric care to adult medicine. When a child or teen has a special health care need or a disability both the child and family must prepare carefully for this transition. Our clinic staff are experts in the issues facing adolescents and families as they reach this milestone.
YATC physicians assist youth and parents in understanding and identifying changing health needs, transitioning responsibility for managing health care needs, identifying an adult health care provider, and maintaining insurance coverage. We also provide guidance and support in identifying appropriate adult services for ongoing therapy, vocational support, education, independent living or appropriate residential placement.
