Assessing children ranging in age from newborn to 16, with follow-up visits for patients up to 21 years of age, our services include evaluation, case management and medication for a full range of behavioral and developmental conditions, including:

  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Autism spectrum disorder
  • Behavioral difficulties
  • Developmental delays
  • Learning problems

A collaboratve approach to evaluation

Our team includes a board-certified pediatrician, specializing in neurodevelopmental disabilities, nurse practitioners and psychologists. With a compassionate, down-to-earth approach, we offer comprehensive evaluations using the most advanced testing and work closely with other subspecialists to ensure your child obtains an accurate, thorough evaluation and the best options for referrals.
