  • Meyer Center for Developmental Pediatrics

    For over 50 years, the Meyer Center for Developmental Pediatrics has provided medically directed diagnostic services for infants, children and adolescents spanning the full spectrum of developmental-behavioral pediatrics – from intellectual disabilities and autism spectrum disorders to learning disabilities and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) – including services for those at risk due to prematurity or other neonatal complications, birth defects, or genetic syndromes.

    The Meyer Center takes a family-centered approach to patient care by individualizing diagnosis and treatment plans for each child and family. Patients are evaluated by a developmental pediatrician and clinicians from other disciplines, including developmental psychology, social work, speech/language pathology and physical/occupational therapy, as needed. Following a child's evaluation, written reports are provided to the parents and the referring physician.

    The Desmond Neonatal Follow-up Clinic is part of the Meyer Center for Developmental Pediatrics. The Desmond Clinic provides long-term developmental follow-up for high-risk infants, including former premature babies and babies with other neonatal complications. Patients undergo neurodevelopmental assessments with a developmental pediatrician and a social work consultation to provide support for families as their child progresses through the early intervention and educational system.

    Other subspecialty clinics are also part of the Meyer Center for Developmental Pediatrics, including:
