Research & Training

The core team members include a board certified developmental pediatrician and pediatric nurse practitioner, clinical psychologist, special educator, speech and language pathologist or audiologist. Other specialists, such as social workers, occupational therapists and physical therapists are also available for consultation as needed. Teams are generally set up as determined by the child's needs.

Of note, Special Education provides academic assessments and, in conjunction with clinical psychology, is an invaluable part of the team in making the diagnosis of a learning disability. In addition, they often make very specific recommendations to aid the child in the learning process.
