Behavior and Neurodevelopment

We evaluate and coordinate care for:

  • Autism

  • Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder

  • Cerebral palsy

  • Developmental delay

  • Intellectual disability

  • Other challenges to mental, social, emotional, or academic development

Clinical Evaluation

Prior to the child's first visit, parents and those involved in the child's daily life (the child’s school teachers, daycare staff and caregivers) will be given a pre-evaluation that asks various questions about the child’s activity and behavior. This information gives the care team a clearer understanding of the child's background and allow them to make the most accurate diagnosis. Throughout the child's first visit and the course of his or her treatment, our team works closely with the family and conducts the most up-to-date standardized tests and assesments to ensure growth and development goals are achieved.

Assessment to Support Growth

Our care team uses special techniques that are play-based to help a behaviorally or developmentally delayed child learn how to sharpen motor skills, focus, create neurological stimulus and even something as basic as how to smile. Our team will complete an assessment and refer each patient to appropriate centers. We provide medicine management, case management, and medical advise where appropriate and applicable. 

Continued Follow-Up Care

Routine appointments are made with the child at the Stramski Center to encourage continued growth and development and to track progress. The number of visits a child needs per year are based upon the child’s diagnosis and condition.
