Child development and behavior

You want the best for your child's health and well-being. That's why a developmental or behavioral issue can be overwhelming and scary. When a problem arises, we’re here to help.

Our child development and behavior specialists are experts in the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment for developmental-related conditions and behavior issues. Our medical specialists, therapists, psychologists, and others offer your family comprehensive care. They will work with your child's pediatrician, who remains the primary care provider, and refer you to early intervention programs, if needed.

Help following a NICU hospitalization

Transitioning home from a neonatal intensive care unit is challenging for even the most prepared families. Families need guidance as their babies grow and develop, as graduates are at a higher risk for developmental and growth delays. Periodic evaluations provide reassurance children are doing well, and they provide the support children need if challenges emerge.

Our neonatal follow-up team are experts on the impact that illness and prematurity has on a child’s early years.

Intensive therapy

In addition to our neonatal follow-up care, we offer a variety of therapy services, including inpatient care for children who need constant medical attention, and outpatient care for medically-stable children who require intensive therapy. We also work with children with diagnosed or suspected developmental delays, including issues with language or speech; movement, balance or dexterity; vision; social or emotional skills; and cognitive (thinking) skills. We help families in need of intensive support for a child with delays.

We offer comprehensive evaluation and treatment for children with a variety of autism spectrum disorders, including intensive, in-home behavioral services for children ages 2-8 and non-intensive services to all children and young adults. Learn more about our autism services.
