How to Request an Appointment

At the Siskin Center for Developmental Pediatrics we believe that the best care is coordinated care.

This provides us with comprehensive medical history and information, and maintains continuity with the child’s primary care physician and specialist.

Diagnosis Services

Specialized pediatricians for developmental care.

At Siskin Children’s Institute we specialize in the care of children with developmental disabilities. Our team provides evaluation of a child’s functioning in numerous areas including their development, social skills, learning, behavior, and daily living activities such as eating and sleeping. We seek to identify each child’s strengths and challenges, then offer treatment recommendations and connection to resources to address the needs unique to this child and family.

Developing a treatment plan for your child is beneficial in many ways. A plan provides the family with a road map for services and further assessments that may be required to clarify diagnostic impressions. This may include referral to other specialists, diagnostic labs and imaging, therapy services, psychometric testing, as well as suggestions for behavioral and environmental modifications.

Early identification of children with developmental deficits is critical for positive long term outcomes. Therefore we partner with primary care providers and community services to connect children to needed interventions as early as possible.
