Twenty-five percent of outpatient pediatric visits are for developmental or behavioral concerns. For example, 1/150 children have an autism spectrum disorder and up to 17% of children have a developmental disability or behavior concern. Although developmental disabilities are common, the needs of these children can be complex. This conference will provide an update and practical approaches to identifying and managing global developmental delay, autism spectrum disorders, intellectual disability, learning disabilities, and ADHD. Family-centered care and web-based resources will be emphasized.
Target Audience: Community pediatricians, family physicians and nurse practitioners.
