NeuroDevelopmental Pediatric

The Neurodevelopmental Pediatrics at Naval Medical Center Portsmouth provides direct assessment and comprehensive services for infants and children with known or suspected disabilities and/or complex medical needs.

Conditions include but are not limited to: autism spectrum disorders, intellectual disabilities, developmental delays, and cerebral palsy.

Our primary goal is to assist the Primary Care Manager (PCM), parent(s), and the military child who has a special developmental need to minimize health consequences and the effects of the disability on a family, promote self-esteem, enhance quality of life, and maximize the child’s level of independence.

Our Neurodevelopmental Pediatricians are dedicated to providing compassionate services to children with developmental disabilities and their families, while adhering to generally accepted standards of medical practice.

We conduct physical and neurological examinations and make medical diagnosis along with recommendations regarding appropriate laboratory studies or genetic testing.

Some children referred are seen for diagnostic purposes only. Others are followed long-term with comprehensive lifestyle counseling regarding education, socialization, family involvement, and healthcare specific for their development and chronological age.

The child’s primary care manager/pediatrician is responsible for ongoing management of care even when the Neurodevelopmental Pediatric Department is involved with care.
