Pediatric Development and Behavior
Brenner Children’s pediatricians provide medical and
neurodevelopmental evaluations and treatment for children with diagnosed or
suspected developmental disabilities.
Concentrating on toddlers, preschoolers
and young children with dual diagnoses (developmental and behavioral disorders)
and complicated Attention Deficit Disorder, Brenner Children’s specialists
provide behavioral evaluations and treatment.
Brenner Children’s operates a multidisciplinary
developmental evaluation clinic for children up to age five and a regional
intensive care nursery program follow-up clinic. Specialists also complete
neurodevelopmental evaluations for very low birth weight infants and collect
data for the NIH’s Neonatal Follow-Up Network.
A feeding clinic, called KIDS-EAT, provides a
multidisciplinary evaluation of oral feeding problems and a comprehensive
treatment plan, including follow-up and therapy.
Amos Cottage provides children with special needs a number
of outpatient developmental programs that are unique within our region.
