Pediatrics – Developmental & Behavioral


Our division aims to offer clinical programs and provide professional training with one goal in mind: to optimize the behavioral and developmental outcomes of children, especially those faced with issues of the urban environment.

Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics at Boston Medical Center

Our approach is family-centered: we recognize that often the best way to help a child is to help his/her family and enrich his/her community through training and technical assistance. For this reason our clinical programs are broad in scope - some focus on assessing developmental and behavioral problems in children, others on the health care needs of children with special needs or malnutrition, still others on providing much needed therapy to children who have been traumatized by witnessing violence.

Our training is likewise broadly-based on a wide range of topics, including: early brain development, the emotional growth of the child, facilitating early language development, attention deficit hyper disorder, malnutrition and autism spectrum disorders.

Please explore our website to see the depth of clinical and teaching programs we offer. And let us know if we can be of further help to you.
