Autism spectrum disorders (ASD); attention deficit / hyperactivity disorder (ADHD); developmental outcomes in children with congenital heart disease (CHD); medication management of ADHD in children with CHD.
Julia Anixt, MD, is a developmental-behavioral pediatrician whose research focuses on medication decision making for the treatment of behavioral conditions in children. Her goal is to optimize the quality of life and daily functioning of individuals with developmental and behavioral conditions, including autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and attention deficit / hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), by aligning the prescribing of behavioral medication treatments to best fit patient / family preferences, values and priorities through the use of shared decision making. She has expertise in the evaluation and treatment of children with developmental and behavioral conditions associated with complex congenital heart disease (CHD) and is engaged in research studies to better understand the developmental needs of this population and assess the risks and benefits of behavioral medication use.
Dr. Anixt has a unique combination of clinical expertise, research, and QI skills and serves as an advisor to two learning networks. She is an improvement advisor for the Autism Treatment Network (ATN) learning network. Additionally, she is leading a developmental screening initiative to detect delays and improve referrals to early intervention services for infants with complex CHD, at more than 55 centers through the National Pediatric Cardiology Quality Improvement Collaborative.

ADHD; learning disabilities.
Tanya Froehlich, MD, MS, is a developmental-behavioral pediatrician whose research focuses on attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Her publications have investigated the prevalence of ADHD, ADHD medication use, and preschool psychotropic medication use. She also studies the contribution of environmental exposures (e.g., lead, tobacco, and pesticides) to ADHD etiology, and has served as co-investigator on a National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences R01 grant examining the effects of pyrethroid pesticide exposure on ADHD symptoms. In addition, Dr. Froehlich is working to identify predictors of ADHD medication response, and received a National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) K23 Award to investigate this topic. Currently, she is the principal investigator on an NIMH-funded R01 aimed at characterizing effects of abrupt methylphenidate discontinuation, including evaluating genetic and phenotypic moderators of effect.
In addition, Dr. Froehlich has a strong interest in interprofessional training and mentoring. She is site principal investigator for a state-funded grant whose mission is train professionals from a variety of disciplines to provide enhanced care for families on Ohio Medicaid, with a special emphasis on care of developmental and mental health conditions. Dr. Froehlich is also supervisor for a Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (LEND) interdisciplinary project which focuses on elucidating the needs of families in homeless shelters. Furthermore, Dr. Froehlich serves as associate director of the Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics Fellowship as well as the director of research training for the Cincinnati Children’s Division of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics.
