The Child Development Clinic provides diagnosis, assessment and management plans for children from early childhood to adolescence with or at risk for neurodevelopmental disabilities. Clinic staff members work in interdisciplinary teams, combining expertise to evaluate each child and make recommendations for care. Staff members include professionals from audiology, developmental/behavioral pediatrics, nursing, nutrition, occupational therapy, physical therapy, psychology, social work, and speech and language pathology. The clinic is the primary venue for interdisciplinary clinical training under the auspices of the Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities training grant awarded by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau using Combating Autism Act funds. Trainees participate in hands-on and didactic training which includes assessments, parent conferences, lectures, and report writing.

Clients are diagnosed with an array of developmental disabilities including intellectual disability, autism spectrum disorders, motor disabilities, learning disabilities, behavioral disorders, communication disorders, and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.
