Referral criteria:

Diagnoses:  Autism Spectrum Disorders, Developmental Delay (including developmental concerns associated with prematurity and genetic disorders), and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. We believe that our strongest area of impact is for children with the above suspected or confirmed diagnoses, and these are the areas where the medical team will focus their time.

Challenging behavior (not associated with a diagnosis listed above): We believe that challenging behavior is initially best managed through behavior management training for the family. The Parent Empowerment Series is available to address this and listed below. 

Age: Developmental Pediatrics- Children ages 0-5 years

Early intervention is vital to maximizing a child’s potential; therefore we will focus on this age group to maximize the impact of our resources.
