The Mailman Center for Child Development is an academic center at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine that addresses concerns of individuals with developmental disabilities and children with special health care needs through:

    Clinical service
    Training for professionals
    Parental workshops

We are one of the top 10 programs in the United States for children with neurodevelopmental disabilities and chronic illness. The Mailman Center is housed in a 9-story building with nearly 115,000 square feet of office, clinical, training, conference, and laboratory space and is located on the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Medical Center campus. The Mailman Center annually serves over 19,000 children, youths, and their families.

The Mailman Center for Child Development is an integral part of the Miller School of Medicine’s Department of Pediatrics. The Center offers extensive research facilities for education and contains everything needed to fulfill its mission of research, training, and services to children with special needs and their families. We focus on infants, children & adolescents with developmental delay or disability, though many children with other special health care needs receive services through our expanding programs. The more than 19,000 consumer visits each year provide the basis for advanced clinical training, research, and the development of more effective strategies for diagnosis and treatment.

In addition to the extensive training and technical assistance we provide to professionals, trainees, and families throughout South Florida, the Caribbean and Latin America, we offer a wide selection of exceptional clinical evaluation services. As the only university-based center of our kind in South Florida, we are able to collaborate with specialists covering the spectrum of child healthcare needs. This enables us to provide the best possible care to our patients. In all cases, we strive to provide exemplary interdisciplinary care.

Our evaluation services may include appointments with individual clinicians, select teams of two or three clinicians, or a full interdisciplinary team representing four or more of our ten disciplines; Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics, Psychology, Speech-Language Services, Genetic Counseling, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Education, Audiology, Nutrition and Social Work.

If you would like to make an appointment or to begin the evaluation process, please call 305-243-6631.
