Helping children with neurological or developmental conditions

Approximately one in six U.S. children suffer from developmental issues. Pediatrix® Medical Group, part of the Pediatrix® family, employs pediatric developmental specialists who provide expert care to infants, children and adolescents with, or at risk of, neurological or developmental disorders.

Our pediatric developmental specialists evaluate a child's gross motor, fine motor, language and social/emotional development. They perform various diagnostic tests to determine the underlying cause and collaborate with a patient's family and primary pediatrician to establish the best treatment option for his or her unique needs. In addition, they work closely with specialty physicians, local early intervention agencies, preschools, schools, home health agencies and therapists to help ensure each child receives precise treatment to help reach his or her maximum potential.

Bringing expertise and compassion to pediatric patients, our dedicated pediatric developmental specialists are trained to manage the complex needs of children facing various developmental issues, including:

  • Delayed development: Speech, language, motor skills, thinking capacity.
  • Prematurity defects: Cerebral palsy, visual/hearing impairments, poor health/growth.
