Patient Care Profile
I enjoy working with preschool through adolescent age patients and their families in Developmental Disabilities Clinic to promote behavior that will maximize social, communication and academic development within the home, school and community. I often see children soon after an initial autism spectrum disorder diagnosis. My strengths as a thorough clinician who individualizes care to best meet patient and family needs help me to perform this role.
In the Infant and Toddler Developmental Clinic I assess early development in NICU graduates, as these children are at a higher risk for developmental delays and disabilities. I really enjoy working with families to promote the health and well being of these young children, whether it be through suggestions on daily activities parents can do to promote healthy development, or through referral to Early Intervention for formal therapies.
