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, autism spectrum disorders, and cerebral palsy to learning disabilities, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and developmental coordination disorders – including services for those at risk due to prematurity or other neonatal complications, birth defects, neurologic disorders, genetic syndromes, or psychosocial circumstances.
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 may be referred for further evaluation with medical social services, psychology, speech/language pathology, audiology, and physical/occupational therapy, as needed. Following a child's evaluation, written reports are provided to the parents and the referring physician.
In addition to evaluating patients referred to the Meyer Center for Developmental Pediatrics, Meyer Center physicians participate in other subspecialty clinics, including:
• Texas Children's Hospital Autism Center
• Desmond Neonatal Follow-Up Clinic
• Down Syndrome Clinic of Houston
• Spina Bifida Clinic
• Cardiology Developmental Outcomes Program
