Genetic and Developmental pediatrics
The Division of Genetic and Developmental Pediatrics serves families of children who are at risk for, or diagnosed with a genetic, neurodevelopmental, or behavioral condition by providing comprehensive diagnostic and evaluative services throughout the community.
The division is dedicated to delivering interprofessional training and conducting research and program evaluation aimed at improving quality of life, decreasing barriers to care, and improving early identification and intervention by serving children and families at risk, collaborating with the community, and educating new and practicing professionals. This inter-professional training is accomplished with the support of a Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (LEND) grant with support from HRSA.
The division has grant funding from the Centers for Disease Control and state contract to perform research on Fragile X, spina bifida, autism and muscular dystrophy with a variety of projects evaluating the health and health outcomes for individuals with developmental disabilities.
