Because kids don’t always develop or behave as expected

Children may develop or behave differently for a variety of reasons. To help figure this out and promote optimal development, your child may need a specialist with specific training in Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics.

The Department of Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics provides consultations for children from Birth through 18 years of age who have developmental challenges. The specialist will spend time with you and your child, often over several visits, to ensure that your child’s and family’s needs are met and that your questions are answered.

Designed for children and adolescents…New Hampshire Hospital for Children

If your child is not developing as expected, or has unexplained behavioral issues, your pediatrician or family doctor may refer you to one of our Developmental and Behavioral Pediatricians for further evaluation. We also take referrals from mental health providers, schools, early supports and services, and other agencies. New Hampshire’s Hospital for Children is proud to provide the community with the services of our experienced Developmental and Behavioral Pediatricians.

Developmental and Behavioral Pediatricians often evaluate or treat children with the following conditions:

  •      Developmental Disabilities
  •      Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  •      Autism Spectrum Disorders (Autism, Asperger Syndrome,
         Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD)
  •      Medical Causes of School Problems
  •      Behavioral Difficulties of Young Children
  •      Developmental Delays
  •      Tic Disorders/ Tourette Syndrome

In times of need…New Hampshire Hospital for Children

Our Developmental and Behavioral Pediatricians can help manage children and adolescents with developmental and behavioral problems, while collaborating with your child’s primary care provider to provide exemplary care.
All close to home.
