Nemours Children's developmental behavioral pediatricians help kids learn and grow to their highest ability. We assess how children are progressing physically, emotionally, socially or intellectually.
Our team evaluates delays in communication, movement or motor skills. We look into why anxiety aggression, outbursts or trouble focusing happens. We diagnose learning differences and conditions that affect development, like autism spectrum disorders.
We’re experts at untangling different problems that can happen at once. We see kids early, even babies. This can mean timely treatment and better outcomes. We also work with children who have special health needs like cerebral palsy and Down syndrome.
You can count on us to create a care plan that focuses on your child’s success at home, school and with friends. Our team supports and guides you every step of the way. We want your child to live their best, happiest life.
Our team works closely with specialists in pediatric behavioral health, neurology, genetics, rehabilitation therapy, nutrition and many others. They may be part of your child’s evaluation and treatment. You get this all in the same health system.
For your convenience, families can see a developmental behavioral specialist with our easy-to-use telemedicine option. Whether it’s a follow up visit or a discussion about development, we can often save you travel time with our secure video connection.Learn More
