Developmental Pediatrics

small developing child

There’s a wide range of what’s considered typical when it comes to child development. But if there’s something about your child’s physical, emotional, behavioral or social development that has you concerned, Nemours’ expert developmental pediatricians will evaluate what’s going on and if necessary, create a treatment plan specific to your child’s needs.

Read More About Developmental Pediatrics

Developmental pediatrics is a medical specialty that focuses on whole-child growth and development. Nemours’ developmental pediatricians are board-certified in pediatrics and have completed a fellowship in either neurodevelopmental disabilities or developmental and behavioral pediatrics.

Working together with a team of medical specialists (neurologists, geneticists, nutritionists, therapists and more), we help kids of all ages who have developmental delays, developmental disabilities or medical conditions that affect learning and behavior.

Our expertise covers a range of child development concerns, including:

  • suspected or known delays in motor, language or social skills
  • autistic spectrum disorders
  • learning disabilities
  • attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • developmental concerns associated with known congenital or genetic conditions, such as cerebral palsy or Down syndrome
  • pediatric feeding and swallowing disorders
