Weill Cornell Child Development Program – Our multi-disciplinary team in the Child Development Program is dedicated to providing integrated and collaborative care to a diverse population of children with a wide range of difficulties. We provide evaluations, treatment and referrals for difficulties including: delays in motor and language development, hyperactivity-attention deficit disorder, autistic disorders, cerebral palsy, and failure-to-thrive. In addition, we treat behavioral difficulties such as temper tantrums, sleep disorders, and enuresis (bed-wetting).

Early Intervention Program – What happens during the early years of your child's life is very important to his or her later health and well-being. It is best to identify problems in babies and children at the earliest possible age, so that they can get the best care. Because of the importance of this early care, the State of New York passed a law stating that infants and toddlers with developmental disabilities are entitled to Early Intervention Services. We are an approved evaluation center for the New York State Early Intervention Program.

The Division of Child Development at the NewYork-Presbyterian Phyllis and David Komansky Center for Children’s Health provides two important functions for children and the community. First, our child development physicians provide screening exams to those infants and children at risk for developmental delay. The second major clinical care component is the evaluation of children who clearly demonstrate an abnormality in development (e.g., children with learning problems or who evidence delays in motor, language or social function including autism). The evaluation leads to a diagnosis and treatment plan.

The Division provides evaluations, treatment, and referrals for the full range of developmental difficulties, including:
delays in motor and language development
attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
autistic disorders
cerebral palsy
failure-to-thrive
temper tantrums
behavioral disorders

Parent education is an important component of the Division’s services, and we work with parents to help them best care for a child with a developmental disability.
