About Your Visit
When a child is born, it might not be immediately evident that he/she may have difficulties with speech/language, motor skills, and/or learning. Some children may have subtle issues that may not fully surface until later in childhood. Early identification is important to help link families to appropriate resources when they are needed.
Staff at the Developmental Evaluation Clinic work in consultation with the family and the Primary Care Provider to evaluate the child, to determine strengths and weaknesses, and make recommendations for treatment, ongoing monitoring, and/or further diagnostic evaluations as appropriate.
At each clinic visit we will provide families with developmental information and offer specific strategies to improve their child's learning and social development. Families will be provided with verbal evaluation results at their visit, and both the family and Primary Care Provider will receive a written report with recommendations for services and follow-up information.
