Exploring gender and sexuality is part of every child’s development. For some kids and teens, the gender assigned to them at birth doesn’t match the gender that feels most comfortable to them. This can make young people feel alone, unsupported and rejected. They may also experience depression, anxiety, bullying, and other physical and emotional issues.
At the Nemours Gender Wellness Program, we take a gender-affirmative approach. This means we fully accept our patients. We also recognize the challenges your family may face as you learn about and adjust to these changes. We’re here to answer your questions and support your family throughout your journey.
Following the most up-to-date guidelines, we offer a wide range of services for kids and teens who are looking for help with their gender identity development and/or transition. We work closely together as a large, experienced team to give your child both medical and psychological care that meets their specific needs:
