Developmental-Behavioral Pediatricians and multidisciplinary professionals who evaluate and treat children with Autism Spectrum Disorder

 

We conduct evidence-based evaluations and treatment to address a variety of children’s developmental and behavioral concerns to ensure each child the best opportunity to reach their highest potential. We believe that development occurs in the context of nurturing relationships and that shared decision making and a strong alliance between a clinician and family is essential to the success of any intervention. We use face to face visits and some telemedicine for established patients to best accommodate families busy lives.

Some of the conditions we evaluate and treat include: 

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder

  • ADHD

  • Anxiety and other social emotional issues

  • Developmental Delay particularly due to underlying genetic problems or prematurity

  • Intellectual Disability

  • Problems with sleep, toileting and feeding

  • Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder

  • Issues related to adoption and foster care

  • Enuresis and encopresis

  • Developmental follow-up of preterm infants, children with complex congenital heart disease

In addition to comprehensive evaluations, we  provide: 

  • Psychopharmacological management

  • Ongoing follow-up and case management

  • Parent Education particularly around positive parenting and managing challenging behaviors

  • Advocacy

  • Functional behavioral assessment (FBA)

  • Functional analysis

  • Behavior Intervention Plans (BIP)

  • Curriculum-based assessment

  • Classroom management strategies 

  • Inclusion strategies for students 

  • Mindful breathing and relaxation

  • Executive functioning support
