The Developmental Medicine division evaluates and cares for children with conditions related to the development of the nervous system, including the brain. We specialize in the care of children with special needs, and tailor our services to the individual child and family.
We see children with many conditions, including: autism spectrum disorders, brain and nervous system problems, cerebral palsy (CP), developmental delays in language skills and in controlling muscle movement (motor skills), Hydrocephalus, Premature Birth, the evaluation and management of spasticity, Spina bifida and other neural tube defects, Tourette Syndrome (TS). We also provide prenatal consultation to mothers identified to have a fetus with central nervous system abnormalities in conjunction with the Prenatal Center.
