Child Development & Behavior
If your child has a developmental, learning or behavioral problem, your primary care physician can refer your child to our developmental-behavioral pediatrician. Our team works closely with parents, families and schools to understand the family's view of the problem and the effect it is having on the child and the family.
We care for children and families with a wide range of developmental and behavioral difficulties, including:
- Learning disorders, such as dyslexia, writing difficulties, math disorders and other school-related learning problems
- Attention and behavioral disorders including attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and associated conditions including oppositional-defiant behavior, conduct problems, depression and anxiety disorders
- Tics, Tourette syndrome
- Regulatory disorders, including sleep disorders, feeding problems, discipline difficulties, complicated toilet-training issues, enuresis (bedwetting) and encopresis (soiling)
- Developmental disabilities including cerebral palsy, spina bifida, autism spectrum disorders and visual and hearing impairments
- Delayed development in speech, language, motor skills and thinking ability
- Behavioral and developmental problems complicating the full range of pediatric chronic illnesses and disabling conditions, such as genetic disorders, epilepsy, prematurity, etc.
