The eXtraordinarY Kids Clinic at Nemours Children’s Hospital, Delaware gives children everything they need to reach their full potential, developmentally, academically and socially. We bring together different specialists with expertise in helping kids thrive.
X and Y chromosome variations can affect a child’s physical, intellectual, emotional and social development. They may have short stature, puberty disorders, speech problems, muscle tone issues and trouble with attention. With the right care given at the right time, children can, and do, live independent and fulfilling lives.
Our program is led by a pediatric endocrinologist with career-long experience in treating genetic conditions like Turner, Klinefelter and XXX syndromes. We’re researching and working to bring newborn screening and early treatments to kids everywhere.
We arrange your child’s care with experts in pediatric genetics, developmental medicine, rehabilitation, psychology and more. We work closely to diagnose your child’s specific condition and plan treatment. Together, we help your child grow up healthy, happy and strong.

Before we see your child, we gather as much information as we can. We may have you complete a questionnaire and send us previous test results and academic records. After review, we’ll schedule your initial evaluation.
In your first visit we will begin to assess your child’s medical health and behavioral, social, motor and speech and language skills. After this assessment, we will have a complete picture so we can make the best possible plan of care.
Nemours has a number of service regions. Selecting your region will help us show you the right contact information and the most relevant content for you.
