Boyer Children's Clinic

Contact: Anne Leavitt

Core Function: Clinical Services

Boyer Children's Clinic, a community-based clinic, is a non-profit therapy and early childhood educational facility serving children from birth to three years of age who have neuromuscular disorders such as cerebral palsy or delays in development.

The mission of Boyer Children's Clinic is to improve the quality of life of children with neuromuscular disorders or other developmental delays by providing the best solutions for each child and family. To achieve this mission, a multi-disciplinary team, including a developmental pediatrician, nurse, speech pathologists, occupational and physical therapists, educators, family resource coordinators and social worker, provides services. The team works closely with the family to conduct initial diagnostic assessments and plan and implement individual programs.

CHDD faculty work at Boyer Children's Clinic to improve service delivery and facilitate training for pediatric fellows and residents. Faculty also see clients who need developmental pediatric consultations, answer medical questions for staff, and facilitate communication with primary care physicians who send clients to Boyer.

The pediatric fellow and residents who receive training at Boyer are enrolled in the LEND training program.
