The DAC diagnoses, treats and manages most simple and complex developmental and behavioral disorders including ADHD, developmental language disorder, autism spectrum and other behavioral disorders.
Children who come to us for an evaluation are seen on at least three occasions. During the first visit, members of the DAC staff will take a comprehensive medical history and collect as much information from parents and/or caretakers as possible to better understand the presenting problem and its manifestations. Families should bring with them all prior testing and evaluative reports, whether by physicians, psychologists or school personnel. The more information families provide, the more efficient the process.
At the second visit we will conduct our own assessment. Depending on the child and his/her prior history, this assessment may include neurodevelopmental testing, speech and language testing, attention screening and behavioral observation among other possible tests.
When our evaluation is complete, a final visit is scheduled which will include the parents (or guardian or caretaker) and/or child depending on specifics of the case. At this time we will share the results of our evaluation and make recommendations.
All neurodevelopmental testing is performed by developmental and behavioral pediatric clinicians. Three full reports are generated, one for each of the three phases of the evaluation, with comprehensive follow-through and communication with referring (primary care) physicians
