multidisciplinary diagnostic services

Perhaps you have noticed something not quite right with your child or adolescent. It could be one of the following:

  • A delay in speech
  • A lag in learning or motor development
  • Difficult behavior
  • Problems with activity level and attention

For parents, the unexplained can be overwhelming. For children, waiting only prevents them from receiving the care they need to succeed. The PDC leads the way in diagnosing children and teens who face developmental challenges. Headed by a physician who is board-certified in developmental and behavioral pediatrics, our team of specialists is experienced in deciphering even the most puzzling developmental problems and planning an individualized course of intervention that is right for the needs of your child and family. A full range of professionals is ready to help, including:

  • Developmental pediatrician
  • Pediatric neurologist
  • Child psychiatrist
  • Developmental and behavioral psychologist
  • Physical, occupational and speech/language therapists
  • Social Workers

Following a diagnosis, very specific plans and therapies are then provided by center therapists or by referral to an appropriate resource. Our bilingual (Spanish-English), bicultural staff can also address the needs of non-English speaking families.
