child with staff members

The Seacoast Child Development Clinic provides diagnostic evaluation and consultation for children birth through age five who have developmental differences. The interdisciplinary evaluation focuses on the concerns of the family and referring professionals. The team typically includes a developmental pediatrician, a speech and language pathologist, an occupational therapist, and a family coordinator.

As a result of a visit to the clinic, families and community providers can expect to receive:

  • Family centered and culturally sensitive care.
  • Information regarding their child’s development and whether or not a diagnosis is present.
  • Next steps to best address the needs of their child.
  • Information about medical and related services to address the identified developmental concern.
  • Strategies and approaches for home, school, and in the community.
  • Suggested resources and services available for the child and family.

We use a team approach in evaluating and diagnosing children who have a question of a developmental delay, autism, or a combination of developmental questions such as language /communication, learning, or motor sensory skills.
