Developmental Paediatrics

A Look at Developmental Paediatrics

The academic division of Developmental Paediatrics is situated at Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital. The division consists of full time academic clinicians as well as a community section of developmental paediatricians.  The main clinical focus of the division is on childhood neuro-developmental and neuro-rehabilitation disorders.   Children with complex developmental disorders have neurologically-based problems that impact in a multifaceted way on the development of the child. These children present with delays in their language, social, learning or motor development and have complex developmental needs. Diagnoses commonly include acquired brain injury, autism spectrum disorders, cerebral palsy, developmental disabilities, developmental impairment, neuromuscular disorders, and spina bifida.
