We understand that developmental problems in our children have an impact on the entire family. Community Care Physicians’ developmental pediatricians are specially trained to consider the medical, social and psychological aspects of these problems in children and adolescents. We provide information necessary for families to understand developmental challenges, providing support and assistance in difficult times. We do all of this with a commitment to excellence, compassion, and care for families. We know that caring for a medically complex child can be challenging, so we are here to help the family access services and resources.

Our developmental pediatrics teams focus on children who may have a developmental or neurological problem. For example, we evaluate infants with slow motor development, and toddlers with delayed speech, communication problems or signs of autism. We also see preschoolers with immaturity of learning, kindergarten age children with learning difficulties, and older children where there is a concern about disability. Children born with birth defects and medically fragile children, especially those with developmental disabilities, are seen for help in planning their complex pediatric care. We also evaluate children with attention, sleep and behavioral disorders, and those who are at risk for developmental difficulties due to prematurity, failure to thrive, general health issues, genetic concerns, adoption or issues of problem care giving.
