Welcome to Developmental Pediatric Specialists
Developmental Pediatric Specialists is a small, intimate, private practice for children and families with developmental concerns, conditions and disabilities.
The philosophy of the practice is holistic, interdisciplinary and personalized, providing consultation, evaluation, monitoring, management, coordination and treatment for the child in the context of the family and the community.
We provide evaluations of infants and children to improve understanding of their development and behavior to determine what they need in order to make sure they will reach their full potential and become successful socially and academically. We continue to see the children on a regular basis and provide guidance and assistance where and when necessary. Most importantly, we like to watch them grow, develop and make progress.
"A child does not live in isolation and, often, the long-term difficulties that children face require a thoughtful, comprehensive, coordinated and continuous approach that is family centered and community based."
- I. Leslie Rubin, MD.
