Who we are

The Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics (DBP) clinic is staffed by board-certified pediatricians who specialize in learning, behavior, and child development.

What we do

We interview families, review previous records, and ask families and teachers to complete standardized forms. During a telehealth visit or an in-person visit to the Mailman Center, we observe child behavior and interview older children. Our goal is to help families understand why a child may have difficulty with learning or behavior (diagnosis), and how best to help their child thrive (treatment).

Who we serve

We serve children ages 0-18.

Common conditions leading to difficulties in school or home that may lead to a Developmental Screening Clinic visit include:

  • attention deficit disorder (ADHD)
  • autism spectrum disorder (ASD)
  • developmental coordination disorder (DCD)
  • dyslexia or other learning disorders
  • emotional disorders
  • fine or gross motor disabilities
  • hearing or vision deficits
  • social disorders
  • speech or language delays
  • complex medical conditions that affect a child’s learning or behavior
Who should be referred to DBP?
  • a child who fails a grade or is constantly struggling in school
  • a child who has difficulty communicating or speaking
  • a child who finds reading to be especially difficult
  • a child who frequently has trouble with a teacher or peers
  • a child who is required to attend summer school
  • a child who has a developmental delay
  • a child whose parents or teachers believe should be doing better in school


Our scheduling/registration team works with the family’s insurance, whether Medicaid, Florida Healthy Kids, or a commercial health insurance plan to cover the costs of visits to our clinic. Co-pays and deductibles depend on a family’s insurance. We also encourage families to also contact their insurance company directly to verify coverage and to determine how much you will be expected to pay on the day of the evaluation.
