If your child is dealing with developmental disorders or displaying certain behaviors that have you concerned, the best doctor to turn to is a pediatrician. Our pediatrician, Dr. Marc Connery, here at BYP Kids, like all Board certified pediatricians, has been trained in screening for developmental and behavioral conditions in children and teens here in Northwest Indiana.
What Makes Developmental Screening Important?
All through a child's life, the brain is constantly growing, constantly adding new connections, improving its skills. But sometimes something may hinder that development, causing issues that need to be addressed.
- Learning disorders (e.g. dyslexia)
- Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder
- Oppositional-defiant behavior
- Conduct problems
- Anxiety disorders
- Tics and Tourette syndrome
- Developmental disabilities such as spina bifida, autism spectrum disorders, and cerebral palsy
- Visual and hearing impairments
- Developmental delays in speech, cognition, or motor skills
