The Child Development Clinic provides diagnosis, assessment and management plans for children from birth to adolescence with or at risk for neurodevelopmental disabilities. Clinic staff work in interdisciplinary teams, combining expertise in evaluating each child and making recommendations. The goal is to provide definitive developmental and etiologic diagnoses with useful management recommendations that support the primary care providers in establishing a true Medical Home for each child.

The High Risk Infant Follow-up Clinic (HRIF) provides developmental follow-up of children from birth to age 8 who are designated as high risk due to prematurity and/or low birth weight or prenatal exposure to drugs. The goal of the clinic is to provide early identification and referral for early intervention for the neurodevelopmental and neurobehavioral problems associated with prematurity, drug exposure and other biomedical and environmental risk factors.

Dr. McLaughlin serves as the Director of the Neurodevelopmental Program at Seattle Children’s. Drs. Zinner and Bennett also work in developmental pediatrics programs operated at Seattle Children’s.
