• About Us

    We understand that your child may have challenges that require special attention at home, in school and in the community. The Division of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics (DDBP) helps address questions and concerns you may have about your child's physical or cognitive development, learning, or behavior. 

    Our staff includes physicians with expertise in developmental and behavioral pediatrics, nurse practitioners, nurses, psychologists, speech language pathologists, occupational and physical therapists, social workers, special educators, child life specialists and nutritionists. We will work with you to develop a comprehensive treatment plan for your child.

    Family support provided throughout our process includes parent networking and education programs, sibling support groups, and the Rubinstein Library for health-related books, videos and adapted toys.
