Pediatric developmental and behavioral conditions are encompassed within our spectrum of services. We offer a full span of diagnostic services through the UK Developmental Pediatrics Clinic to help uncover complex developmental-behavioral conditions. We also offer multidisciplinary assessments in conjunction with other pediatric therapy providers, such as speech and occupational therapists, to help patients and families cope with the everyday management of these conditions.

When a child isn’t developing at a rate considered to be normal or is exhibiting signs of a neurodevelopmental disorder, it can be worrisome for parents. But it’s important to note that early intervention and treatment can make a significant difference.

If you or your pediatrician believe your child may have a neurodevelopmental disorder, the UK Developmental Pediatrics Clinic offers comprehensive diagnostic and evaluation services to help you determine your next steps. Our team of experts has extensive experience in diagnosing and guiding treatment for neurodevelopmental disorders.

Conditions we treat

  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
  • Autism
  • Developmental/behavioral difficulties associated with complex medical conditions
  • Global developmental delays
  • Intellectual disabilities

While your child’s treatment plan will be tailored to their medical condition and other needs, it may include treatment from a multidisciplinary team of medical providers from Kentucky Children’s Hospital and UK Pediatric Therapies.
