Our Developmental-Behavioral Pediatricians promote the developmental and behavioral health of infants, children, adolescents and their families by advancing research, education, evidence-based clinical practice, and advocacy for children.  We have expertise in high-prevalence developmental disorders and behavioral problems including developmental delays, school problems, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, autistic spectrum disorders and regulatory disorders related to feeding, sleeping, elimination and affect.  Medical consultations and follow-up care are provided at the UCSD Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics Clinic and other programs in the San Diego Community.
