Down Syndrome Specialty Clinic

Core Function: Clinical Services

The Down Syndrome Specialty Clinic was founded in 2016 with the goal to provide long-term developmental and behavioral consults and care for individuals with Down syndrome and their families. Clinicians focus on providing formal developmental assessments, consultation for behavioral concerns, and assessment for common medical problems that can contribute to behavior or development concerns. They also collaborate with schools and early intervention programs to help provide the best environment for success. In addition, clinicians can assess for the co-existence of other diagnoses such as ADHD or Autism Spectrum Disorder. The specialists available in our clinic include: developmental behavioral pediatrics, psychology, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, social work, nutrition, genetic counseling, and audiology. Clinic staff members work in interdisciplinary teams, combining expertise to evaluate each child and make recommendations for care.
