Child Development Clinic Services
Child Development Clinics provide comprehensive diagnostic evaluations to assist families who have children with developmental and behavioral differences in making informed decisions regarding medical, developmental, and educational needs. Services are family-centered and culturally sensitive. Specialty evaluations are available for autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, developmental delays and learning disabilities.

As a result of the evaluation process, family and community providers can expect to:

  • Receive information regarding a child’s developmental and educational needs, whether or not a diagnosis is present
  • Learn about medical or related services that may be needed to assist with or treat the identified developmental concerns
  • Receive information about community resources and support in accessing services
